Herbert List


Herbert List (1903-1975) was a fairly well known German 20th Century magazine photographer.  On the side, he did some noteworthy male nude work that we'll look at today.  I find the lighting in this 1950s photo of showering Hamburg industrial workers to be very interesting.

  1. The lighting here is cool as that in the last picture in the series. "Spotty," for want of a better word.

    1. Yes, I think List made masterful use of the available light.

  2. Thank you for displaying List's photos. I had seen various ones in the past, but never connected them. I looked up List after seeing the photos here and enjoyed reading about his life. I will try to find Junge Manner (early photos by List) edited by no less than Stephen Spender.
