Fritz Kahn Collection of Photos

I was browsing the internet and I came across a very interesting collection of photos from Fritz Kahn, a German doctor, educator, popular science writer, and info-graphics pioneer. These photos resonates with some of the ideas related to the class such as man as a machine, the human body as a commodity (Respiration 1943) and the separation of the body into parts and illustrating them into various divisions of labor (second picture, Man as Industrial Palace 1926). 
What is also interesting about these photos is that Kahn illustrated them to explain complex scientific ideas. You can take a look at these photos at
