The Last People

Share:

Part Seven of August Sander's encyclopedic project People of the Twentieth Century completes the gallery's exhibition cycle.

The final category of Sander's ambitious endeavor to chronicle German twentieth century society consists of just 16 photographs. Titled The Last People, this section is dedicated to portraying those who are disadvantaged – the elderly, the homeless, the mentally and physically disabled.

In Sander's work, death is seen as an elementary part of life – a sign of the photographer's close connection with nature. The Last People ends Sander's monumental portfolio collection with an image of his son's death mask, created at Sander's request by the painter and sculptor Hans Schmitz in 1944.


Fifty years after August Sander's death, the Feroz Gallery dedicated the year of 2014 to the photographer's work, chronologically showing all seven categories of People of the Twentieth Century as well as presenting Sander's introductory work The Face of Our Time.
