On Lake Como, Italy, two trees are reflected in tranquil water, creating visual connections between liquids and solids, forms and materials. Twisted branches reflected in the gentle waves create abstract figures. The mountains and clouds melt into the horizon. The Italian lake seems boundless.

Trained as a fine artist, German photographer Herbert List combined his love of photography with a fascination for surrealism and classicism. Among others, his works on Italy and Greece were published in the magazines Life, Photographie, Verve and Harper's Bazaar. After a meeting with Capa, Herbert List became a Magnum Contributor in 1951.
