We love the sensous and textured photos of Renger-Patzsch. This wonderful German photographer, like the American Edward Weston, aimed to capture the world as it is; painstakingly setting up long exposures to find the details in the everyday. This is best discovered in his book The World is Beautiful and he was a leading exponent of the Objectivity Movement, but his photos are so much more than facsimiles of real objects. And you can pick up some excellent examples of his work at Koller Auctions in Zurich this month at a bargain if the estimates are right. Also in the sale are some striking portraits of American Indians from the the 1900s by Edward Sheriff Curtis and black and white compositions by Geraldo de Barros. A must see catalogue and a treasure trove for buyers!
