Dennis Hopper - Los Angeles Times

The late actor Dennis Hopper is remembered for a lot of things. There is the volatile hippie he portrayed in “Easy Rider,” the 1969 counterculture classic he also directed. And there’s his depiction of an unhinged Frank Booth in David Lynch’s “Blue Velvet” in 1986.

Dennis Hopper’s The Lost Album, a collection of the late actor’s poignant black-and-white photography on view now at L.A.’s Kohn Gallery through September 1, was made possible by two key actors: his Rebel Without a Causecostar James Dean, who encouraged him to try his hand behind the camera (albeit as a director), and his first wife, Brooke Hayward, who bought him a Nikon mirror flex in 1961.

Dennis Hopper, “The Lost Album,” at Kohn Gallery. In addition to being an actor, Hopper was a devoted photographer, who, for a period of 10 years, principally through the ‘60s, carried his camera with him wherever he went. In the process, he captured scenes on the street, celebrities at rest and his artist friends (figures such as Ed Ruscha and Billy Al Bengston).
