A lingering and revealing exhibition of works by German photographer August Sander runs until July 28. These photographs were mostly taken during the inter-war years (Weimar Germany) his homeland.
Each photograph is without artifice or distraction. More often than not the subject looks directly into the camera.
Today I visited the show and read all sorts of temperaments and appetites in these pictures; provocation, resignation, respect and compassion.
Each picture (and its subject) begs questions.
