COOL THING WE WANT #394: A Copy Of “Dennis Hopper – On The Road” Photo Book

July 26, 2013.

A new book celebrated the photography of American actor, filmmaker and artist Dennis Hopper is due out at the end of the summer and we wants it. It’s called Dennis Hopper – On The Road and it “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.” If you’re galavanting around Spain this summer, you can see 141 of his shots – taken with a 1961 Nikon mounted with a 28mm lens – together with clips from his many films on the walls at the Museo Picasso in Málaga (exhibit open until September).

Bonus: one of my favourite scenes from Apocalypse Now, when Sheen meets Hopper…“The heads. You’re looking at the heads. I, uh – sometimes he goes too far, you know – he’s the first one to admit it!” Amazing.
