Additionally, a special linen-slipcase edition of 30 is also on offer, which includes one platinum/palladium print.
Alfred Ehrhardt is regarded as an outstanding representative of German avant-garde photography. He merged the photographic movements of New Objectivity and New Vision through his cropped compositions and serial rhythmisation of image structures. His photographs isolate the natural form from its concrete context and abstract the composition, often employing high-contrast lighting to achieve dramatic results. Committed to Bauhaus’s structural vision, he chose graphic lines of light to emphasise the surface structure and materiality of the subject. It is no coincidence that Ehrhardt was named the “natural philosopher with a camera” in the 1930s.
Ehrhardt’s photographs are nature photographs in the broadest sense. Across seven chapters, this photobook details Ehrhardt’s central themes, including a selection of renowned images of the mudflats, the Curonian Spit, crystals, shells and snails, corals and sponges, microphotographs and landscapes in compositional stringency, iconic of his style. The publication assembles 176 photographs of exceptional beauty, breathtaking diversity and masterful distinctiveness.
