About the author (1986)

Dennis Hopper has been a photographer since his teens, and his photographs have been exhibited at such museums as the Whitne Museum of American Art, the Kunsthalle Basel in Switzerland, and, most recently, the Angel Adams Center for Photography in San Francisco. Hopper was born in Dodge City, Kansas in 1936. He first gained notoriety for his performances alongside James Dean in the film Rebel Without a Cause. In the 1960's he was known both for his association with and promotion of the decade's countercultural art movements and for his wild, rebellious behavior. In 1969 the film Easy Rider--which Hopper cofinanced, co-wrote, directed, and costarred in--became surprise hit and is now considered one of the definitive 1960s films. Since then he has continued to direct and has acted in such milestones as Apocalypse Now, Blue VElvet, and True Romance.
