Within the framework of Photokina 2014 in Cologne, the legendary Leica photographer Thomas Hoepker was inducted into the Leica Hall of Fame. He follows in the footsteps of photography greats such as Barbara Klemm, Steve McCurry, René Burri and Nick Út.
Hoepker has been working with cameras from the Leica M series for many decades, producing many iconic images with the rangefinder camera. His pictures are also on display at Photokina and on September 19 (at 6pm) he will personally be guiding a tour through his exhibition.
In addition to the honourable award, Dr. Andreas Kaufmann will be gifting the winner with a special edition Leica T as well as prize money amounting to 25,000 euros.
