Dennis Hopper Photographs 1961-1967

By Dennis Hopper and Tony Shafrazi, Taschen, £45, 484 pages, hardback, ISBN 978-3-8365-7099-2

When he died in 2010, Dennis Hopper left behind not just an accomplishedof scenery. But perhaps these larger-than-life performances pointed more towards an individual who was unafraid to approach life with maximum force. If proof were needed, then this reprinted book, first published in 2011, will surely make the point felt. Hopper was no dilettante – his handling of the camera was organic and natural, and his eye for what was photographically worthy was refined. Between 1961 and 1967, he surrounded himself with some of the most fascinating cultural figures of the decade, including Martin Luther King, Andy Warhol and Paul Newman. This set of images helps to establish him as one of the late 20th century's most fascinating American figures.
