The photographs of secular architecture and religious architecture in Florence by Hilde Lotz-Bauer certainly originate not only from photographic commissions. Above the roofs of Florence, she tried to either capture the architecture in a panorama picture or photograph unusual perspectives of churches or inner courtyards. In her photographs of palaces dating back to the 1940s, she avoids overlaps and distortions which could spoil the perception of the pure architectural forms. The urban setting with its buildings appears in her pictures in timeless monumentality. This section contains only a small selection of Hilde Lotz-Bauer’s urban photographs. In 1977, she was able to exhibit some of these photographs under the title “Chiese, palazzi e ponti fotografati con bravura” in the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence on the occasion of her seventieth birthday.
