Review: Dennis Hopper: Photographs 1961-1967

Taschen,€54.90, Hardback

During the 1960s, the actor Dennis Hopper carried a camera everywhere -- on film sets and locations, at parties, in diners, bars and galleries, driving on freeways and walking on political marches.

He photographed movie idols, pop stars, writers, artists, girlfriends and complete strangers. Along the way he captured some of the most intriguing moments of his generation with a keen and intuitive eye. A reluctant icon at the epicentre of that decade's cultural upheaval, Hopper documented 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 marches.
