Livre Thomas Hoepker - Photographs 1955–2005 Born in 1936 in Munich, Thomas Hoepker shaped the German magazine scene with his camera from the 1960s to the 1990s. For the magazines "Stern" and "Geo", Hoepker was able to travel the world taking photographs. Initially working as a staff photographer and correspondent for "Stern", he was among the first with a special permit to travel freely between West and East Berlin, managing to tell the everyday life in the 'brother country' (East Berlin) as realistically and impartially as possible. "Photographien 1955-2005", which contains his images of East Berlin, is a sizable monograph, originally published to accompany his retrospective at the Photo Museum of the "Muenchner Stadtmuseums" (City Museum of Munich). It contains an abundance of his reportage images and tra... Livre MAGNUM MAGNUM, les photographes de l'agence se commentent en duos

... Exposition « Vis-à-Vis » There is no photography. There is always only the photograph which gazes back at the viewer. Sometimes with a careful, tentative and questioning look; sometimes with a brisk or hasty glance. But it always offers something: an invitation to brief conversations. The viewer always looks, and the photograph, full of curiosity, gazes back. As in 1966, when the German reportage photographer Robert Lebeck took a portrait of the former German chancellor Konrad Adenauer at his 90 th birthday celebration in Bonn. The image, published in the magazine „Kristall”, shows nothing more than the left eye of the aged chancellor. The rest is covered by the portly body of a stranger. But this eye was already enough. The magazine photo engaged the reader in a dialogue. What really moved Adenauer on this winter day, what he saw or... Exposition Exhibition : « Ali and Behond » Thomas Hoepker is one of the last living legends from the golden age of photo journalism. He was the first German member of the Magnum photographic agency and the first ac credited photographer in the German Democratic Republic, where he worked for “Stern” magazine. It was a job from “Stern” in 1964 that gave him the opportunity to start shoot ing portraits of the boxer Muhammad Ali at regular intervals over a period of ten years. This resulted in a legendary series that has gone down in photo graphic history and made Hoepker internationally famous.
Bildhalle in Kilchberg/Zurich is showing "Ali and Beyond", which presents a number of vintage and early prints that have never been exhibited before. The exhibition also includes wellknown and notso ... Exposition Exhibition : « Images that stay with us » by Thomas Hoepker The world is being manipulated. Things which we consider to be real may be, at closer inspection, just a muddle of incoherent messages. What had once been clear signs of communication, now looks like a mess - jumbled and confused. Dallas, Texas 1963: the facade of a building, facing the highway, is scattered by texts and signs - it's a chaos of letters. One message conceals the next, one billboard covers it's neighbor. The more we want to decipher this image the less we understand this chaotic jumble. Maybe this multi-facaded warehouse had been waiting to be discovered by a clear eye, an eye like Thomas Hoepker’s, at age 27. From this multi-facaded chaos Hoepker distilled one of his typical images. Hoepker had embarked on a search for an America beyond Times Square and Mullholland Drive, for a reportage for... Exposition Exhibition : Drive In at Bildhalle Curated by Galerie Esther Woerdehoff, Paris and Mirjam Cavegn, Bildhalle, Drive In is an exhibition about cars, showing the approach of this subject by numerous photographers, from the fifties to nowadays.
When Elliott Erwitt, during and after the depression era, photographed those rolling dreams with his candid sense of humor and irony, cars, especially the very large and imposing ones, were already a landmark in the American landscape. When René Burri travelled to Brazil to document the building of modern cities, one of his most stunning photographs, «Men on a roof top, Sao Paulo, 1960», is a view of the rush hour traffic on a busy street. Simone Kappeler, another Swiss photographer, drove through America in 1981, 30 years after her fellow countryman Robert Frank, and took pictures with her Hassel... Exposition Exhibition : Women Powerful and Powerless Virtual Exhibition: 19 January – 19 July 2015 One of the hallmarks of the Teutloff Photo + Video Collection is that although it’s focused on the human body, it always carries a distinct political component. This fact created the idea for a so far unknown vantage point on the Collection – a "woman’s view" became the new approach for a virtual exhibition.
Under the heading "Women: Powerful and Powerless" previously ignored or even discounted links between works and exciting new issues and areas of interest are opened – and I say this without any wish to enter the hotly contested ground of feminist polemics. The feminine view of the collection moves in the field of tension between birth, religion, politics, sexuality, beauty and body protest. It ... Exposition Les Yeux Grands Ouverts: 100 ans de photographie Leica L’exposition Les YEUX GRANDS OUVERTS: 100 ANS DE PHOTOGRAPHIE LEICA organisée par Hans- Michael Koetzle, éclaire divers aspects de la photographie 35 mm récente, du photojournalisme à la photographie documentaire, en passant par des regards artistiques libres, couvrant quatorze chapitres de l’histoire de la photographie.

Après la Maison de la Photographie au Deichtorhallen de Hambourg, l'exposition voyagera à Berlin, Francfort, Vienne, et d’autres endroits en Europe.

The tattoo, originally “the tatau” ornaments the skin and thus abstracts everyday life. The Tattoo is a masquerade of the skin and marks the body itself as the place of fantasy. Because through the painted body - through the tattoo - the body itself becomes exotic and therefore there is no normal everyday life anymore. Now there is only an exotic and erotic everyday life possible.
To cover the body with signs is like opening a door. A door to paradise, to another place, to an utopian place. The body itself becomes this heterotopos. The body itself becomes this utopian place. The door of the tattoo leads to the theater of illusions - just think of Genet -, to the theater of desires like in a dream. The door of the tattoo leads to the room of childhood, to the chambers of the unconscious.

The exhibition Color presents over 100 photographs various positions of artistic color photography and gives with works of path breaking artists like Edward Steichen, Jeanlopu Sieff, Helmut Newton, William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, Jeff Koons up to Nadav Kander, Robert Polidori or Martin Schoeller insights into the development of the handling and the aesthetisication of color within the field of photography,
Beyond the usual process of colorizing black and white prints afterwards colour photography established itself from the 1930s onwards first within fashion and advertisement photography and quickly became an essential tool for the mass media and the entertainment industry. Colour used to pertain an adequate tool to describe the world how it could be in our imagination and wishes – colour outlines, accentu... Exposition Faces of Our Times, Atlas Gallery ICONIC PORTRAITS OF POWERFUL AND INFLUENTIAL FIGURES OF THE LAST 60 YEARS - EXHIBITION OF RARE VINTAGE AND SIGNED PHOTOGRAPHS
Atlas Gallery announce an important new exhibition of rare portraits by some of the most notable photographers of the last six decades. Curated personally by the gallery's director Ben Burdett, the subjects have been chosen from the fields of politics, sport, the arts, entertainment and science.
The selection of works on show attempts to examine the way in which the camera portrait not only provides the individual with a visual memory and reference for the subjects of the portrait but in some rare cases, when reproduced enough times, provides an almost universal human record.The works chosen have been selected not only for the status and influence of the subjects but for the importance of ...

Exposition Streetlife Photographs from our collections 1930-1975 Streetlife - Photographs from our collections 1930-1975
In addition to the Soulas exhibition 50 original photographs from our collections, titled "Streetlife" are on show. The selection documents a forty-year development of reportage photography.
During the Weimar Republic the first photo shots in public areas -on the streets- documenting focal pointsand events were done by Alfred Eisenstaedt or Tim Gidal. Outstanding photographers working for the illustrated magazines "Life" and "Stern", such as Jerry Cooke, Robert Lebeck, Stefan Moses and Thomas Hoepker continued in this tradition.
Again and again public streets became a stage for crucial contemporary historical happenings: so for example in the photo series, shot by Roman Vishniac of the Schtetln of Polish Jews, before their exp... Exposition Magnum Photos 60 years at the Stedelijk Museum Throughout that period MAGNUM never ceased to supply photographs that have become part of the world’s collective memory – pictures of landmark events like the Russian army’s invasion of Prague in 1968 and the Tiananmen Square demonstrations in Beijing in 1989. The exhibition uses photographs, books and texts to illustrate the history of MAGNUM year by year and gives visitors the opportunity to view work by 83 photographers, such as Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Carl de Keyzer, Martin Parr, Susan Meiselas and Leonard Freed.
MAGNUM was established in 1947 by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David Seymour. They were convinced that photography was the best medium with which to document world events and raise public awareness. And they succeeded – the way MAGNUM photographer... Exposition Thomas Hoepker . Retrospektive Ob 11. September 2001 in New York, Hungersnot in Indien, der Schah von Persien oder Muhammad Ali - die Fotografien von Thomas Hoepker berühren durch eine einfühlsame Bildsprache. Obwohl die Aufnahmen oft in politischen Krisengebieten entstehen, die von Krieg und Not geprägt sind, wird der Betrachter nicht durch Schockfotos überrascht, sondern erfährt tief berührt und unmittelbar die Situation der Menschen. Thomas Hoepker sieht sich dabei immer als Auftragsfotograf, arbeitet dokumentarisch und betont die Wichtigkeit von Authentizität und Zeugnishaftigkeit in der Fotografie. Viele seiner Aufnahmen und Fotoreportagen besitzen trotz ihrer Herstellung für tages- oder wochenaktuelle Medien eine zeitlose Gültigkeit.
