“After the German National Team had checked in for the flight that was to take them to Berlin for the celebration party for their World Cup victory, it occurred to me to put the trophy into an everyday type of situation during the security scan. Of course, the trophy didn’t need to be scanned but, with my limited Portuguese, I managed to convince the security officer to let me take this picture. Naturally, having a player in the background was very important for the picture, but Thomas Müller, the only one wearing his football shirt, was already on the other side and was a bit irritated at having to go through security again. Today, however, the photo also represents one of his favourite souvenirs of the World Cup victory, and he has a large copy of it hanging in his home.”

Paul Ripke

On July 13, 2014, the Hamburg photographer was in the thick of things at the Football World Cup final at the Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro. Today, exactly one year later, the One Night In Rio exhibition opens at various venues: in Hamburg (Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe), Munich (Deutsches Museum), Cologne (Deutsches Sport & Olympia Museum) and Berlin (Haus Ungarn). On July 17 (Berlin), July 19 (Cologne), July 20 (Munich), July 21 (Hamburg), July 22 (Berlin) and July 23 (Cologne), Ripke is offering independent, guided tours for photography nerds and football fans. Ripke is a reportage and commercial photographer active predominantly in the fields of music, sports and travel.
