In the years 1927–1935, Albert Renger-Patzsch, one of the most important photographers of the New Objectivity school, took a comprehensive series of photographs in the Ruhr area depicting the outskirts of towns, landscapes of spoil pits, country roads, back yards and suburban houses, allotments and coal mines. The result is the only body of work by Renger-Patzsch that was not commissioned. With reserved emotionality and clear compositions, the photographs mark a significant position in the genre of landscapes that was, for instance, seldom found in painting at that time.
