Thurston Hopkins – The Golden Age of Reportage
31/10/03 - 10/1/04
Celebrating a lifetime of achievement, Getty Images Gallery, in association with Harpers & Queen Magazine, produced this special exhibition featuring the work of distinguished British photographer, Thurston Hopkins. In a career spanning four decades, Hopkins became known for his uncanny ability to depict the human condition through photographs that demonstrate a great sensitivity to the subject, while taking a creative approach to his sometimes widely varied material.
Hopkins’ photographic career peaked when he achieved his ambition to join the staff of Picture Post. During his eight years working exclusively for this renowned magazine he travelled on assignments around the world and was honoured with two British Press Pictures of the Year awards for photojournalism.
