First view of Limited Edition Elephant Prints from the Film
10 Years ago, when Klaus Tiedge was still new to the wildlife photography scene, he walked into a gallery for fine art photography in Munich. He introduced himself to the owner as a new up and coming Wildlife Photographer. The owner smiled politely and said that is great news and he wishes him well.
That Gallery owner was Stephen Hoffman.
In 2002, Stephen Hoffman established his gallery in Munich with the focus exclusively on photography. The gallery exhibits a variety of prestigious solo and group exhibitions, showcasing images from the Classics to Modern and Contemporary Photography.
At the time, the initial conversation was over within 5 minutes, but a seed was planted. Little to Klaus’s knowledge Stephen was intrigued by his bold approach and kept tabs on Klaus’s progress over the years.
Although Klaus was already an established international photographer by this time, he was still relatively unknown in the FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY World.
With the expansion of Klaus’s Social Media platforms and the venture into video and film the intrigue came to an action point. Not long after the return from the film shoot in March 2018 the phone rang.
The person on the other end was Stephen Hoffman. He said to Klaus that he was following over the year and he liked what he was doing because of its authentic approach. From then on they formed a good relationship.
Right now, we are really excited to announce that the Stephen Hoffman Gallery is hosting their first solo exhibition of Klaus Tiedge’s “Pride of Africa Collection”.
Amongst a selection of popular limited edition prints from the collection, we are very proud to say that the gallery will be showing for the first time ever some of the distinct elephant pictures as seen in the film / trailer from Klaus’s safari in 2018.
We would also like to thank Stephen for featuring in the film “Safari of my Life”.
Dates: 7 June – 13 July 2019 Solo Exhibition runs for 4 Weeks
Location: Galerie Stephen Hoffman, Prannerstrasse 5 (Back of Hotel Bayerischer Hof),

What to expect:
A handpicked selection of “Pride of Africa images” will be on display. This exhibition will also include a selection of new Elephant images from Klaus’s most recent trip to Kenya. These were part of the documentary film that depicts the story behind the creation of said images.
