Emil Otto (E.O.) Hoppé was the most famous portrait photographer of his day —one century ago. Hoppé had a reputation like Annie Leibovitz today. He photographed Albert Einstein, King George V, Queen Mary, Thomas Hardy, Henry James, George Bernard Shaw, and many others. He traveled the world from England with his cameras, plates, and chemicals. Aspiring photographers inspired by his work frequently sought his advice. That advice was surprising then and still relevant for young creatives today.
