The Visual Gallery will once again serve as a cultural highlight at photokina 2008 by presenting the best works of internationally famous photographers and award-winning young talents. The event will feature a very special reunion, as Thomas Höpker will display highlights from his distinguished career as a photojournalist. Höpker received two awards in photokina’s “Jugend photographiert” (Young Imaging Days) competition back in the 1950s, when he was not even 20 years old. In 1958, Höpker, who now lives in New York, took part in photokina’s “Deutsche Bilderschau” (German Photo Review). Further highlights at the Visual Gallery will include exhibitions from the “Cicero Gallery for Political Photography,” MAPHO (Museum for Architectural Photography), and the German Association of Freelance Designers (BFF).
