Emil Otto Hoppé was a German-born British portrait, travel, and topographic photographer active between 1907 and 1945. He moved to London in 1900 to train as a financier, but soon took up photography. Hoppé opened a portrait studio in 1907 and within a few years, he became a highly successful pictorial portrait photographer in Europe, attracting famous sitters from politics, art, literature, and the theatre. By 1919, Hoppé had begun to travel internationally in search of new subjects and landscapes, which resulted in a number of books being published. In 1930, he spent a year in Australia, documenting the country, including the building of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Ref: Wiki.
