I went to an exhibition on the photographer August Sander while I was in Edinburgh. The exhibition was so striking, the way he photographed his subjects was truly amazing. His idea was to create a truthful vision of the German people in the 20th century- he titled each photo with the profession of the subject, rarely including their name, as he was trying to divide the German people into seven main groups; The Farmer, The Skilled Tradesman, The Woman, Classes and Professions, The Artists, The City, and The Last People. He wanted to show everyone, and he really believed he could, in a completely honest way.
