Can anyone tell the history of photography in yet another new way? If you let yourself be guided by the selection of works from the very personal collection of the Cologne-based collector Baroness Jeane von Oppenheim presented in this book, you experience the development of photography in the 20th century not in a chronological fashion but according to the transitions of portraits, landscapes, architecture, still lifes, fashion and film. Oppenheim gave her outstanding collection of about 700 photographs to the Norton Museum of Art at Palm Beach in 1999. This book is focussed on unusual, atypical samples from the oeuvres of 37 seminal artists such as Bernd and Hilla Becher, Albert Renger-Patzsch, August Sander and Alexander Rodchenko. 132 illustrations in duplex and color illustrate the aesthetic difference existing between various types of imagery and exemplify positions from different continents, cultures and periods. This extraordinary combination offers viewers a fresh new look onto the world of photography. (English edition available ISBN 3-7757-0973-8)
