August Sander - Boxer (Boxers), 1929

Inkjet print 
Authorized, titled, dated and numbered on a certificate 
26 x 16,6 cm
Edition of 150

The photograph originated on the basis of an original silver gelatine print that August Sander made from a glass negative plate (13 x 18 cm). The Cologne-based LUP AG produced this high quality art print.

The photograph of the two boxers is one of August Sander’s most well-known images – not least due to its fine humour. Boxing was one of the most popular sports in the Weimar Republic – this is obviously an image in keeping with the times. One of the boxers, Paul Röderstein (on the left) was cruiser-weight district champion and although he never hit the big time, he was always one of the most well-liked boxers. Röderstein’s friendly ‘opponent’ in the photograph is Hein Heese.

August Sander (1867-1964) is famous for the extensive series of portraits from the project Menschen des 20 Jahrhunderts (People of the 20th Century). With this extensive collection, Sander attempted to portray all walks of life in the first half of 20th-century Germany. In December 2006, Foam presented a retrospective of work by August Sander.
