Joachim Schmid - Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts
Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts
16 A4 booklets in a box, 24 pages each
edition of 25 copies
"The photographic project Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts (People of the Twentieth Century) began as an experiment to see if there was any logic behind which newsworthy photographs make it to the front covers of newspapers, and how this may correspond with the diversity of photographs of the respective event. Created between August 1985 and March 1987, the final collection consists of fifteen chapters, each containing repetitive images of a particular person that, for some reason or another has made it onto the front covers of German newspapers."
