Product information "Thomas Hoepker "Wanderlust""
  • 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.

Thomas Hoepker *June 10, 1936, Munich, Germany The gift of a record camera makes it possible for Thomas Hoepker to take photographs of teachers and schoolmates, which he could sell directly to them. After his schooldays, which leads him via Stuttgart and to graduate school in Hamburg, he begins his studies in art history and archeology in Munich and Göttingen. At this time he takes part in photo competitions and twice won a prize in "Jugend fotografiert" at the Photokina. He ceases his studies because of his love for photography. From 1959 he works regularly for magazines and yearbooks. His picture stories appear in magazines such as the Münchner Illustrierten, twen and Kristall, until he is finally hired by Henri Nannen and Rolf Gillhausen in 1964 at Stern. The photo agency Magnum Photos starts already in 1964 to archive Hoepker's pictures and to promote his favor. In 1974, he became the first photographer to be accredited to the then GDR with his then wife (star journalist Eva Windmöller) to document the local life of the citizens there. As a Stern correspondent, both are drawn to New York in 1976. Between 1978 and 1981, Hoepker worked as director for the American edition of Geo magazine. After these years he moved again to Stern in Hamburg, where he was Art Director from 1987 to 1989. He is finally became a full member of Magnum Photos.

From 2003 to 2006 he takes over the presidency of Magnum Photos.
