Dennis Hopper Photographs 1961-1967

In the 1960s, Dennis Hopper took his camera everywhere: on film, at parties and dinners, in bars, art galleries and demonstrations. This is how he captures the most exciting moments experienced by his generation. Compiled by Hopper himself and enriched with incisive texts and excerpts from interviews, this book retraces the prodigious photographic career of one of the most fascinating American personalities.

Dennis Hopper (1936-2010) was an artist, actor, scriptwriter and director. He first became known to the general public with his roles in La Fureur de vivre (1955) and Géant (1956). He changed the face of American cinema with Easy Rider (1969), which he co-wrote, directed and in which he played one of the leading roles. He then starred in hundreds of memorable films including Apocalypse Now (1979), Blue Velvet (1986), Le Grand défi (1986), True Romance (1993), Basquiat (1997), Elegy (2008) as well as in the television series Crash (2008).

Hopper started painting as a child and started photography in 1961 after his first wife Brooke Hayward gave him a 35mm Nikon for his birthday. His paintings and photographs have been exhibited worldwide, including a recent retrospective in Paris: "Dennis Hopper and the New Hollywood". He died in Venice, California, on May 29, 2010.
