This article critically examines the landscape and cityscape photography of EO Hoppe. In Picturesque Great Britain (1926), Hoppe presented a vision of the nation refracted through the prism of an older, Pictorialist aesthetic, whereas his later works, Romantic America (1927) and Deutsche Arbeit (1930) demonstrated a more enthusiastic response to the urban industrial world. This article analyses the cultural, commercial and ideological forces that helped shape Hoppe's work in Britain, Germany and the United States.
