Serving Radical Politics is part of the ongoing series which investigates the controversial images that formed part of the Third Reich’s doctrine.

Photography was Reich Minister Richard Walther Darrés medium of choice for illustrating and disseminating his blood and soil ideology.

His models, staged before the camera at his request, consisted of athletic youths from the Bauernschaft farming community and specially educated at the Burg neuhaus Law School. It was on to their bodies that he projected his utopian notions of the nordic Race and Germanys genetic future.
