National Portrait Gallery Ambra Vernuccio winner

Winner of National Portrait Gallery – STREET

PORTRAITS COMPETITION

E.O. Hoppé, The Image of London.

Hoppé Portraits showcases Hoppé’s fascinating photojournalist studies of every

day British life. Hoppé documented a wide variety of people in their environments including schoolchildren, waiters, postmen, circus performers and flower sellers. These ‘street’ photographs create a fascinating portrait of Britain and city life in London in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.

Inspired by Hoppé’s portrayal of his era through street photography National Portrait Gallery invited  to submit your photographic portraits of everyday life in the 2010s.

The five winners will be put on display in the Gallery for the final two weeks of the exhibition and on the National Portrait Gallery website.
