The portfolio 'The Doctor and the Pharmacist' is included in the group 'Classes and Professions', within August Sander’s photographic typography 'People of the 20th Century'. Sander introduces both representatives of alternative healing methods, such as 'Herbalist' (1929), and practitioners of orthodox medicine, such as 'The Doctor' (1929) in this portfolio. Such juxtapositions were crucial to his understanding of the project as a whole in which individual images depended on and informed each other.
