The ‘25 Books’ shop in Berlin will be hosting the exhibition opening and book presentation of Thomas Hoepker’s work '‘Champ’, on 7th July 2012 at 19.00. The acclaimed Magnum photographer will be personally introducing his work on boxing legend Muhammad Ali.
A photobook, not a biography
Thomas Hoepker had the opportunity to portray and get to know Muhammad Ali at several points throughout the boxer’s career – starting in 1960, when Muhammad Ali won the Olympic Gold Medal in Rome, right through to Ali as an old man, suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Some of the works on show have been all around the world as iconic images, others have never been released before. Instead of being a biography, the extraordinary images allow a visual insight into the life of a legend.
