Sanders conceived of a mammoth photographic project to photograph people of every class of society "archetypes of the modern era." His first presentation of this project was in this book, ANTLITZ DER ZEIT. The Nazi regime suppressed this project because it reflected "undesirables." After the Nazi era, Sander continued this project until his death.
