Alfred Ehrhardt: Das WattAlfred Ehrhardt: Das Watt

Published by Editions Xavier Barral.
Foreword by Alfred Ehrhardt.

Alfred Ehrhardt (1901–1984) taught at the Bauhaus between 1928 and 1933 alongside scenographer Oskar Schlemmer and painters Josef Albers and Wassily Kandinsky. Accused of Bolshevism in 1933 by the Nazis, Erhardt was forced to leave the Bauhaus. At that time he was working in painting, drawing and printmaking, but his exile precipitated a turn toward photography and film, whose fundamentals he taught himself. In 1934, after leaving Germany, Ehrhardt produced his first photographic reportage--a series of spare, enigmatic images taken on the windswept sand dunes of the Curonian Spit along the Lithuanian-Russian border. This gorgeously produced book presents his works from that time. Strongly influenced by his years of modernist training at the Bauhaus, Ehrhardt’s photographs focus on the clear geometric patterns abundant in this seaside wilderness. Maritime landscapes, shells, corals and crystals offered a plethora of subjects from which Ehrhardt could produce stark, stylized compositions.

Alfred Ehrhardt: Iceland (Ísland)Alfred Ehrhardt: Iceland (Ísland)

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Christiane Stahl and Inga Lra Baldvinsd*ttir.

In 1938, Alfred Ehrhardt, then in his thirties, embarked upon a two-month film-and-photography expedition through Iceland, visiting such now well-known landscape monuments as Dettifoss and Langsjàkull. His tour of the island, which he navigated in a high-wheeled Ford and on horseback, was truly ambitious and often dangerous. Following his first photo series, Das Watt (Mudflats) and Die Kurische Nehrung (Curonian Spit), it was only logical that his quest for "elementary manifestations of fundamental forces" would lead him to this untouched "primal landscape" shaped by glaciers and volcanoes, where he hoped to gain insights into Earth's origin. This richly illustrated publication illuminates the context in which he worked, describes other Icelandic expeditions by German photographers and researchers during the 20s and 30s, and explores the typological approach to the landscape and the abstract, avant-garde visual vocabulary that set Ehrhardt apart.
