Overview

Director, actor, photographer, artist and art collector, Dennis Hopper was a man of diverse talents who intersected with countless key moments in American culture—particularly, and most famously, in the 1960s. Hopper’s great gifts as a photographer are well established, with many of his images having entered public consciousness. This handsomely produced volume looks at Hopper’s photography throughout its glory years, from 1961 to 1967. In these years, Hopper carried a camera everywhere, from bars to marches, art openings to freeways. Conceived as a kind of road trip across America, the book runs the gamut of 1960s counterculture and film culture, taking in Warhol’s Factory (where Hopper spent much time), film shoots, street scenes, road trips and of course the classic portraits of movie stars, musicians, artists, bikers and activists, from Martin Luther King to Allen Ginsberg and James Brown. The result of exhaustive research into the artist’s archives at the Dennis Hopper Art Trust, and with a wealth of previously unpublished images, Dennis Hopper: On the Road offers a first-hand, collective portrait of an era.
Dennis Hopper (1936–2010) was an American actor, filmmaker and artist. An exceptional creative talent, his work in film, photography, painting and sculpture gained him both critical acclaim and a high public profile. He won an award at the Cannes Film Festival for 1969’s Easy Rider. His photographic work continues to be featured in high-profile international exhibitions.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Luc Sante
…Dennis Hopper… was one of the most vivid and pithy photographers in the world in the early 1960s, and what a very good thing that Dennis Hopper — On the Road collects his best work in an affordable volume…
WWD - Lorna Koski
The book is meant to resemble a road trip across America, and it covers film shoots, movie stars, musicians, artists, street scenes throughout the country and Warhol's Factory, where Hopper spent a lot of time.
