Herbert List (7 October 1903 – 4 April 1975) was a German photographer, who worked for magazines, including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Life. His austere, classically posed black-and-white compositions taken in Italy and Greece have been highly formative for modern photography. From 1937 to 1939 List traveled in Greece and took photographs of ancient temples, ruins, sculptures, and the landscape, many of which were published in magazines and books. I would like to share some of those today.
