Hamburg Portfolio Review 2022

Discover new photographic works from around the world.

The HRP 2022

The background

The Hamburg Portfolio Review has created a new professional development platform in Europe for the international photo community. Photographers from all over the world were invited to submit their work. Our primary goal was to establish a new platform for the international photo scene in Europe. The HPR offers photographers the opportunity to present their work to international experts in the photography industry. A high-caliber jury reviewed all applications and selected 100 talents who got invited for the review in autumn 2022. During the One-on-One Portfolio Reviews, the selected photographers met up with 4 of around 50 photo experts from various fields and presented their work in an exhibition. The artists gained visibility for their work through contacts with publishers, media houses, museums, festivals, foundations, universities and institutions.

However, the focus was on narrative photography, not advertising images. The HPR is aimed at those who are serious about photography. For whom photography is not just a hobby, but a professional visual medium to engage with current issues. We are always curious to discover new photographic work from around the world, image makers and visual storytellers who have developed their own voice and want to express something through photography.

The HPR is a cooperation of the publishing house Gruner + Jahr with the media brands STERN and GEO and UE. With the kind support of Canon Europe, the Hamburg Authority for Culture and Media, Intesa Sanpaolo and the Altonaer Museum.
