This image stems from a modern print produced on the basis of Sander's original large-format glass plate negative, authorized by the photographer's grandson and long-standing executor of his estate Gerd Sander, and was processed by Jean-Luc Differdange, SK Stiftung Kultur's photographer specialized in the development of August Sander modern prints.
ABOUT THE WORK
Konditor is one of the iconic photographs in August Sander’s extensive oeuvre. Sander had a more or less acquaintanceship with many of those portrayed in his photographs – without making this the subject of his images – and so it might be interesting to know that the pastry cook, a certain Franz Bremer, had a bakery and café opposite Sander’s studio in Cologne. The proud attitude of the pastrycook can be explained by the success story of his bakery. Despite the worldwide economic crisis, Franz Bremer considered himself a winner whose ‘trade in hand found gold in every land’.
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
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.
