Group Description

Hoppe Portraits: Society, Studio & Street
17 February – 30 May 2011

Hoppé Portraits showcases Hoppé’s photojournalist studies of everyday British life. He documented a wide variety of people in their environments including schoolchildren, waiters, postmen and circus performers. These ‘street’ photographs create a fascinating portrait of Britain and city life in London in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.

Inspired by Hoppé’s portrayal of his era through street photography we are inviting you to submit your photographic portraits of everyday life in the 2010s.

1. Get a free Flickr account at
2. Upload your photos
3. Add them to the Hoppé Flickr group and tag them with the word 'Hoppe'

The closing date for entries is Thursday 5 May 2011.

Five winners will be selected by the exhibition curator Phillip Prodger and put on display in the Gallery for two weeks and on the Gallery’s website, they will also receive a copy of the exhibition catalogue (RRP £30) and a pair of tickets for our forthcoming exhibitions Ida Kar: Bohemian Photographer and Glamour of the Gods: Hollywood Portraits.
All the photographs entered and accepted will be projected at the Late Shift Extra event on Friday 13 May.
