DEAR MEMORIES – EINE REISE MIT DEM MAGNUM FOTOGRAFEN THOMAS HOEPKER
Resignation? – Never. As long as Thomas Hoepker has a camera in his hand and his wife at his side, the famous German Magnum photographer remains in good spirits despite his slowly advancing dementia. He still has one big dream to fulfil; one last picture story to tell! A poignant journey that takes us across the USA and into the heart of a major artist. Flurina Schnyder
