In 1937 Hoppé visited the African countries of Rwanda, Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, Cameroon, Ghana, Tanzania, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. His documentation in these diverse regions was focused primarily on the daily lives of the native people, their ceremonies and routines, and secondarily on their interaction of the outside world. Hoppé photographed dancing ceremonies, hunting and initiation rituals, landscapes and market scenes, as well as aspects of developing foreign interaction in port cities and government compounds. Hoppé's work exemplifies the mixing of the ancient third world with the modern, developing first world.
