Lying hidden away in Dennis Hopper's home until their discovery months after the artist's death in 2010, this collection of spectacular photographs, exhibited only once in 1969-70 at the Fort Worth Art Center Museum, is a testament to Hopper's prolific and enormous talent behind the camera. These photos are spontaneous, intimate, poetic, observant, and decidedly political. While some are portraits of figures within Hopper's circle of actor, artist, musician, and poet friends - including Jane Fonda, Paul Newman, and Robert Rauschenberg - they also include images from his extensive travels in Los Angeles, New York, London, Mexico, and Peru. Hopper's abiding support of the Civil Rights movement and social justice is evident in his shots from the march on Selma and Harlem street scenes. In images of beauty and stillness he transfers abstract expressionism into the artistic language of photography. Throughout this stunning volume Hopper's sensitive, keenly observant eye shines through, making it clear that he was a deeply committed chronicler of the events that were unfolding around him.

Review:

"After his death, a collection of 400 photographs were rediscovered and published as Dennis Hopper: The Lost Album, providing an incredible look at the actor's view of life from the other side of the camera." -Crave
