Elegant and carefully-assembled photo album of bathers in and around an unidentified lakeside German resort, likely in the years following WWI. The album combines well-composed candid and posed shots of bathers with striking portraits that together reveal a talented photographer, a kind of Jazz Age Jock Sturges. A work of uncommon unity and execution, an accomplished and tender vernacular photobook of German bathing culture.
