In the early 20th century, E.O. Hoppé began one of the most unique photographic documents of London where for over forty years he worked tirelessly to record London’s transition from a 19th century city into a modern metropolis. Systematically chronicling the landmarks and architectural fabric that defined the city of London, Hoppé’s work can be compared both in scale and modernistic approach to Eugene Atget’s photographs of Paris and Bernice Abbott’s of New York.
