Where Street Knowledge Meets Photography

The Street Is Watching


Thomas Hoepker

Thomas Hoepker started taking pictures when he was 16 when he received an old 9x12 glass camera from his grandfather. He developed his prints in his family's kitchen and bathroom and started earning some money by selling photos to friends and classmates. From 1960 to 1963 he worked as a photographer for Münchner Illustrierte and Kristall.
