Herbert List exhibition

The work of the famous German photographer Herbert List called “Hellas” is still running in the exhibition hall of the Estia of Pyrgos Cultural Association at the central square in Pyrgos.
Herbert List (1903-1975) photographed for many magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Life and had permanent cooperation with Magnum Photos photo agency. His photos from Greece dating from 1937 until 1939 - landscapes, sculpture fragments, ruined temples, people’s figures at sea - form a vision of classical Greece, flooded with light and beauty. His work influenced many Greek photographers and holds a prominent place in the history of photography in Greece, especially his photos from Santorini.

However, World War II prevented the publication of his book "Hellas" which was released in its final form in 1993.
