This article considers the originary portfolio, the ‘Stammappe’, as well as other photographs from the first group ‘Der Bauer’ of August Sander’s project People of the Twentieth Century, placing his work in a much wider context of ‘peasant’ representation in the history of German art. The article will also address some of the important distinctions between the ideological framework of Sander’s photographs and the ideas of National Socialist proponents of racial purity who were also interested in physiognomy, such as the photographer Erna Lendvai-Dircksen.
