Dennis Hopper, Photographer


Photo by Dennis Hopper/Taschen

In the various tributes to actor Dennis Hopper, who died May 29 of prostate cancer, many celebrated his sideline as an artist and long-held interest in photography. First picking up a camera the 1960s, Hopper’s work chronicled many of the era’s art house scenesters, as well movie stars like Paul Newman on set and even Martin Luther King during the civil rights movement.

Hopper’s photos were published in the Taschen book Dennis Hopper: Photographs 1961-1967 in 2009 (you can view a mini film here and  flip through it here), and LA’s MOCA will hold an exhibit of Hopper’s work from July 11-September 26.

    I love this photograph it has so much character, I think black and white photography is such an artform it just gives you so much more richness

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content
    I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping
    it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know
    any ways to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.
