Alfred Ehrhardt - Das Watt
|Publisher||Ed. Xavier Barral|
After studying at the renowned Bauhaus in Dessau, Alfred Ehrhardt taught there between 1928 and 1933. Accused of Bolshevism in 1933 by the National Socialist regime, he was forced to leave the establishment. During a stay on the shores of the North Sea in 1934 he produced his first photographic report. In 1936 he published 'Das Watt', his photographs show the space left by the sea at low tide, the sand tracing deep, shallow, sinuous lines and grooves in complex designs.
