Herbert List

Shadows of houses. Trastevere, Rome, 1953

Multiple sizes available

German photographer Herbert List turned his interest towards Italy from 1950 to 1961, photographing everything from street scenes to contemplative photo-essays, from architectural views to portraits of international artists living in Italy. While in Rome in 1953, List injured his foot and was unable to walk the streets. That summer he photographed the streets from the window of photographer Max Scheler's apartment in Trastavere. He experimented with Scheler's 35mm equipment and used a telephoto lens for the first time. Pictured here, shadows of houses in via della Lungarina.
