Albert Renger-Patzsch has often been described as one of the pioneers of 20th-century German photography, focusing on objects and the material world. As a protagonist of the movement that came to be known as Neue Sachlichkeit (new objectivity), he wanted to record the exact appearance of objects - their form, material and surface. Believing that the photographer should strive to capture "the essence of the object", he called for documentation rather than art. This book contains the "Icons of New Objectivity" series - the still lifes of Jena glassware, rows of flatirons at a shoe factory, industrial objects - and also Renger-Patzsch's lesser known photographs of landscapes, architecture, urban scenes and studies of trees and stones. The book also contains a biography, critical commentary and selected writings of Renger-Patzsch in English.
