Previously only available in a limited edition, Dennis Hopper: Photographs 1961-1967 is published today by Taschen. A testament to the decade's cultural metamorphosis, the book presents his candid pictures of celebrities and political events alongside snapshots of the everyday landscape. Hopper's own counter-cultural icon status has been largely constructed around his 1969 directorial debut Easy Rider, in which he also starred - this book looks to be a fitting tribute to his less celebrated photographic contribution to the story of 1960s America, much of which has remained unseen up until now. Leaf through and buy the book here.
