La storia del fotografo tedesco naturalizzato inglese Emil Otto Hoppé (1878-1972) è così intrigante che meriterebbe l’attenzione di uno Scorsese, sempre attento a frugare nel passato di grandi personaggi dimenticati.

Figlio di banchieri, destinato ad una brillante carriera nella finanza, lascia tutto per seguire la sua passione.

Viaggiatore instancabile, pubblica almeno venti volumi di scatti, in seguito venduti all’archivio fotografico londinese.

Qui una catalogazione basata su criteri di argomento rischia di consegnarlo per sempre all’oblio.

Occorrevano la competenza e la caparbietà di Graham Howe per indagare un materiale immenso, catalogandolo con pazienza certosina.

Un lavoro di recupero che ricorda le grandi imprese archeologiche del passato, grazie al quale possiamo ora ricostruire per intero la figura di questo eccentrico artista.

Una mostra al Mast di Bologna dal titolo Emil Otto Hoppé: il segreto svelato, a cura di Urs Stahel, presenta circa 200 scatti inediti incentrati sul tema industriale, realizzati fra il 1912 e il 1937.

Si tratta di un’epoca durante la quale il mondo muta radicalmente.

Hoppé viaggia attraverso l’Europa, gli Stati Uniti, l’India, l’Australia e la Nuova Zelanda, documentando l’avvento di

strutture smisurate e di imprese epiche impensabili fino a poco tempo prima, cercando la bellezza nella fabbrica.

Lui che aveva ritratto i personaggi più in vista dell’epoca, da George Bernard Shaw a T.S. Eliot, da Albert Einstein a Giorgio V, entra nei grandi stabilimenti industriali per immortalare i volti degli operai, sui quali pare imprimersi il mutamento incessante del tempo.

Hoppé registra con grande acume l’avvento di una nuova era, destinata a cambiare per sempre la natura del lavoro e dei meccanismi produttivi.
