A retrospective worthy of Thomas Hoepker’s exceptionally accomplished career.
Will be accompanied by a special exhibition with Leica Galleries at the 2014 photokina Fair in Cologne, Germany, from September 16–21.
Both a record of our times, as well as a testament to the role of photojournalism in contemporary media and culture.
The very best photographic books whisk us away from familiar surroundings in search of far-flung places—and none more so than this impressive volume, a retrospective of photographer Thomas Hoepker’s wide-ranging work. Spanning sixty years, Wanderlust is a spectacular showcase for this photojournalist and former president of Magnum Photos. Hoepker’s remarkable success as a global historian has created an unparalleled visual archive, and he chronicles both the planet’s momentous occurrences and the striking realities of everyday life with equal aplomb. This landmark book allows readers to bear witness to such world-defining events as the Cold War, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and 9/11 in New York—all of which Hoepker’s evocative images helped etch in our collective consciousness.
