E.O. Hoppe
















An upside-down map with Australian at the top and China in the middle (with Britain a little spot on the arse of the world) - now that's just going too far!

Which leads nicely to E.O Hoppe's Australia, a book of images of Australia made by E.O.Hoppe in the 1930s. The book is a rediscovery (click on the previous link of why we don't see more of Hoppe's work) of a fantastic photographer - with images that show the raw edge of Australian life and hint at a nasty Lucky Country underbelly.




























































You can see more of Hoppe's work here, including some great portraiture from the 1920s and 1930s (including Chief White Horse Eagle, Ezra Pound, Mussolini and a Piccadilly flower seller - all pictured below).
