Description
Once locked away in European archives, these 120 early modernist photographs of America rival those of Edward Steichen and Walker Evans, yet their remarkable range of contrast and focus make some of them look more like paintings in shades of sepia and gray. Emil Otto Hoppé was born in Munich in 1878 but lived in London from 1900 until his death in 1972. Though a peer of Paul Strand and Alfred Stieglitz, Hoppé depicts 1920s America as only an outsider could: brave, new, and grand in scale but with a hint of trouble brewing in the gaps of its social fabric, as seen in Hoppé's portraits of Native and African Americans, which are as revealing as his cityscapes. Two stunning portraits appear across from each other here, for example: a southern Civil War veteran and a southern black man of about the same age, in nearly identical poses.
