E.O. Hoppé is one of the most important photographers of the first half of the twentieth century. Celebrated during his lifetime, much of Hoppé's work has only recently been reassembled and this major survey will enable visitors to discover this forgotten master. The exhibition brings together Hoppé's strikingly modernist portraits of important personalities including George Bernard Shaw, Margot Fonteyn and Vita Sackville-West and his fascinating photojournalist studies,which capture the realities of day-to-day life in Britain between the wars.
