Born in Germany in 1878, Hoppé was of English citizenship and actively worked from 1910 - 1945. He was the prototypical celebrity photographer, photographing the most famous of the time, and by 1913 his photographic operations occupied the 33-room Kensington House of the late Sir John Everett Millais. His work was widely exhibited in his lifetime and is held in collections at the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London amongst others. His work fell into obscurity after his retirement in 1945, locked into archives at the Mansell Collection London's oldest picture library known only to a few photography scholars, curators and a handful of collectors. This is the first opportunity to view and purchase these unique vintage London prints by Hoppé.

Exposition Emil Otto Hoppé “His photographs have managed to outlast fashion – one of the rare achievements of photographic history.” Cecil Beaton
In the early 20th Century, Emil Otto Hoppé produced one of the most unique photographic documents of London. Over 35 years he captured the city at a critical point in its transition from a 19th Century city into a modern metropolis.

His work can be compared to Eugene Atget's photographs of Paris, and Bernice Abbott's of New York both in scale and modernistic approach. His photographs record the break with academic and historical traditions in arch...
