Resident in Great Britain from 1902, Emil Otto Hoppé began taking photographs in 1907 and enjoyed an immediate success. Today his work offers an excellent record of England’s artistic and intellectual milieu from the first half of the 20th century.
Hoppé was the archetypal successful photographer, like Richard Avedon and Irving Penn after him. He belonged to the cultural and artistic elite of his era, and had access to the most successful politicians, writers and actors of his day.
