Stunning Black and White Celebrity Photographs Taken by Dennis Hopper in the 1960s

Jean Tinguely, 1963

Dennis Hopper (1936–2010) is a cult figure. One would be hard-pressed to find anyone who better represents the emotionally charged era of the Sixties cultural revolution. He was gifted, self-assured, and radical – “the definitive Hollywood rebel,” a protagonist of the provocative, eccentric, and excessive. Hopper was an actor, director, and author –sometimes all at once, as in Easy Rider (1969), The Last Movie (1971), or Out of the Blue (1980).

John Altoon, 1964

During the 1960s, Dennis Hopper carried a camera everywhere – on film sets and locations, at parties, in diners, bars and galleries, driving on freeways and walking on political marches.

Tuesday Weld, 1965

He photographed movie idols, pop stars, writers, artists, girlfriends, and complete strangers. Along the way he captured some of the most intriguing moments of his generation with a keen and intuitive eye.

Robert Irwin, 1962

A reluctant icon at the epicenter of that decade’s cultural upheaval, Hopper documented the likes of Tina Turner in the studio, Andy Warhol at his first West Coast show, Paul Newman on set, and Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama.
