As manifold as its subjects are the generations represented in the collection: classics of contemporary photography such as Stephen Shore, Paul Almasy, Bernd and Hilla Becher and their students – among them Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer and Thomas Ruff – enter a dialogue with newer positions by young photographic artists such as Pieter Hugo, Jessica Backhaus, Regine Petersen and Tobias Zielony. Among the most important representatives from the genre of reportage photography are Barbara Klemm, Philip Jones Griffiths, Anja Niedringhaus and Thomas Hoepker. The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation attaches great importance to the acquisition and presentation of groups of work, thus allowing the artists’ individual imagery to be fully appreciated.
