Dennis Hopper Photographs 1961-67

'Jasper Johns', contact sheet detail

If you can quickly skip the fly leaf recommendation by Piers Morgan (!?) then this new Taschen book is a rewardingly hefty and detailed feast of information and images. Photographs from around the LA art scene, on film sets and on the Civil Rights march from Selma to Montgomery were amongst Hopper's many subjects. Click on Post Title for link to the exhibition at MOCA which preceded this book, shortly before the actor's death. MOCA's website also carries a nice blog called The Curve.
