A reluctant icon, Dennis Hopper captured a decade of cultural transformation through carrying his camera everywhere he went - 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: 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 March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Collected here are a selection of photographs - more than a third of them previously unpublished - that distill the essence of Hopper's photographic career. Accompanied by essays, a biography and excerpts from interviews with Hopper's friends, family and famous subjects.
