ex-library Lotte Jacobi, longtime friend of Fuhrmann. A very scarce title, one characterized by a photographic style similar to the abstract shots of Blossfeldt. In this photographic "style" of Germany in the 1920s & 30s, Fuhrmann was way ahead of his time, seeing the abstract and even "erotic" imagery in nature. A fascinating example of the Weimar "Neue Sachlichkeit." German photographer Lotte Jacobi was a close personal friend of the avant garde Fuhrmann (his ashes were strewn on her property in New Hampshire) and we have most of his publications in inventory, from Jacobi's personal library.
