When an actor goes behind the lens
When not performing in Easy Rider, Cool Hand Luke, Apocalypse Now, Rebel Without a Cause, or any of the 100 other films on his résumé, Dennis Hopper documented the world around him. In the 1960s, as his career was just starting to blossom, Hopper found himself in a new world full of celebrities and captured the likes of Tina Turner in the studio, Andy Warhol at his first West Coast show, Paul Newman on set, and Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, among others. Along with these photographs, which were compiled by Hopper and gallerist Tony Shafrazi, the 484-page hardcover book Dennis Hopper. Photographs 1961–1967 includes essays and interview excerpts by Hopper and some of his artist contemporaries. For 45 GBP, this book can give you a glimpse into the world of one of Hollywood’s greats.
