Photographer Paul Ripke accompanied the German Football Team to the 2014 World Cup in Rio de Janeiro. His distinctive portraits decorate the 7th floor corridor and the team’s emotional victory moment is enshrined in superior plus room 704.
Paul Ripke, born in 1981, is the son of a GP and grew up in Heidelberg. His father, an enthusiastic amateur photographer, passed on his experience to his son on their joint holidays together. Following initial unpaid commissions primarily from the hip-hop scene, open-aperture travel reports form the focus of his work. For example, Ripke documents the trip he took around the world together with Marteria. In addition, he was appointed photographer for the German national football squad for the 2014 World Cup.
