Herbert List – Greece 1937 to 1939

Herbert List, German photographer, 1903 – 1975

His austere, classically-posed black-and-white compositions, particularly of male nudes, taken in Italy and Greece have been highly formative for modern photography.

From 1937 to 1939 Herbert List traveled in Greece and took photographs of ancient temples, ruins, sculptures, and the landscape, many of which were published in magazines and books (Life, Photographie, Verve and Harpers Bazaar) and also works on his first book called “Licht Ueber Hellas”, which won’t be published until 1953.
