"Dennis Hopper: The Lost Album” is currently on view at Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles. The exhibition, on view through September 1, includes 400 photographs taken by the artist in the ‘60s, originally shown at the Fort Worth Art Center Museum in 1970.
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, actor, director and art collector, apparently wanted his legacy to be his photography. From the time his actress wife Brooke Hayward bought him his first Nikon camera, he took thousands of black and white photographs.
