Albert Renger-Patzsch
Catalogue of the exhibition

Albert Renger-Patzsch (1897–1966), who produced a huge body of work spanning four and half decades, was one of the most influential photographers of the New Objectivity movement that emerged in Germany in the mid 1920s. His original, simple images combine extraordinary realism and documentary value with poetic and phenomenological resonance, giving them great power. This exhibition, and its catalogue, highlight the invaluable legacy of this extraordinary photographer, whose work provides an ideal context for reflecting on the specificities and relevance of photography within the field of contemporary art and culture.
