In Portugal Poppe is a uncommon surname and I like that, but is conducive to misunderstandings:
– What’s your name?
– What? Poppey? Popper ? top? pote? ohhhh Pop! Like rock!
– Yes, but with two p’s and an e, please.
If you are Portuguese and your name is Poppe, you have 99% of chance of being my relative.
I found these two photographers, they have Poppe in their names but they are not my relatives because they are Germans. Apparently in Germany Poppe seems to be a common surname. I wonder if my grand grand grandfather was a German?
So Alexa and Nina are two great photographers and it’s a shame they aren’t portuguese so I could introduce them as my cousins or something, although I have a cousin who is a great photographer too: Marta Poppe.
