Freedom is a Career
John 'Hoppy' Hopkins
British photographer, journalist, researcher and political activist, John ‘Hoppy’ Hopkins is one of the best-known underground figures of Swinging London. His early photographic work has become iconic, but he is also well known for co-founding the counter-culture magazine International Times and the legendary UFO psychedelic club, where Pink Floyd were the resident band. Hopkins helped establish The London Free School and The Notting Hill Carnival.
This exhibition focuses on Hoppy’s pictures of activism in and around 1960′s London such as images of Speakers’ Corner, the Aldermaston “ban the bomb” march and Notting Hill march against racism. Pages from Hoppy’s personal scrapbook, show the images as they were initially published.
