Review

"I was doing something that I thought could have some impact someday. In many ways, it's really these photographs, that kept me going creatively." - Dennis Hopper"

About the Author

About the editor and author:
Born in Abadan, Iran, to Armenian parents, Tony Shafrazi was educated in England from age 13, graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1967. Moving to New York in 1969, he exhibited as a conceptual artist throughout Europe and New York. From 1974–78, he advised and helped build an outstanding collection for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tehran. In 1979, he opened his New York gallery, introducing groundbreaking American artists of the ’80s including Haring, Basquiat, Scharf, Brown, and Baechler, while exhibiting masters of the ’60s: Warhol, Ruscha, and Hopper. From 1990, he exhibited the work of Brian Clarke, Patrick Demarchelier, Robert Williams, Michael Ray Charles, and David LaChapelle. Since 1997 he has represented the Estate of Francis Bacon, and continues to mount museum-quality exhibitions, most recently the critically acclaimed "Who’s Afraid of Jasper Johns?"

About the photographer:
Dennis Hopper (b. Dodge City, KS, 1936) is an acclaimed artist, actor, screenwriter, and director who first impressed audiences with his performances in Rebel Without A Cause (1955) and Giant (1956). He changed the face of American cinema with Easy Rider (1969), which he co-wrote, directed, and starred in. Hopper went on to act in hundreds of memorable films and television shows, including Apocalypse Now (1979), Blue Velvet (1986), Hoosiers (1986), True Romance (1993), Basquiat (1997), Elegy (2008), and the TV series Crash (2008). Hopper began painting as a child and started taking photos in 1961, after his then wife Brooke Hayward gave him a 35mm Nikon camera for his birthday. His paintings and photography have been exhibited all over the world, including the recent retrospective, "Dennis Hopper and the New Hollywood" in Paris. He works and lives in Venice, CA, with wife Victoria Duffy and his three children, Marin, Ruthanna and Henry.

About the contributing authors:
An Englishman who moved to New York in 1973 and became connected to Andy Warhol, the Factory, and Interview, Victor Bockris has written books on Lou Reed, Andy Warhol, Keith Richards, William S. Burroughs, Patti Smith, and Muhammad Ali.

Walter Hopps (1933-2005) was one of the premier curators of 20th century art. Co-founder of Los Angeles’s Ferus Gallery and director of the Pasadena Museum of Art, he was responsible for the first retrospectives of Kurt Schwitters, Joseph Cornell, and Marcel Duchamp. A key advocate of American Pop art, his 1962 survey "New Painting of Common Objects" was the first of its kind. After directing the Washington Gallery of Modern Art, he went on to build the Menil Collection museum in Houston and became its founding director in 1987.

A filmmaker and frequently published art, music and film journalist, Jessica Hundley has directed several documentaries and recently completed her second book, a biography of country-rock legend Gram Parsons.

Read the intro, if you're still not interested where this book is going then you must have no pulse. The story is fantastic, the photos are captivating. Showing slight insight into a mysterious life both publicly and privately. As the owner of many photography and art books, this is among my favourites. I purchased this book back in 2010 when Hopper was still alive, the original retail price was $700. As is the case with many Taschen Collector Edition books the price since then has increased dramatically and likely will continue to do so.

Format: Hardcover
Photographic journals are always introspective and capture the instant of the moment of the time they existed in. And who doesn't like juicy pictures of their favorite celebrities lives that made a difference in their own lives? It is profound in that one can read so much into a static image that was a mere second of a dynamic passing reality. Oh, the possibilities...Unfortunately these profound, now fairy tale photos of the late, great Dennis Hopper and all of his muses can be yours to admire for the low price of just one thousand six hundred dollars. They say a picture is worth 1000 words, but never said Hopper's might be worth sixteen hundred bucks. Then again no ever guessed Warhol's umm, "art", being overlays of paint on photographs taken by others, soup cans, and other peoples work would be worth millions, yet still not 1000 words. Ever.
