Bombay

19 images Created 9 Dec 2016

Hoppé reveals Bombay in the late 1920s as a vibrant, cosmopolitan city. Under physically challenging circumstances and using mostly small, hand-held cameras, Hoppé captured a body of remarkable images that are the first to show a natural, spontaneous, and distinctly Modernist view of Indian life. Notably these street documentary photographs show empathy for the Indian peoples and their move towards independence from British colonial rule.
