The photography of Dennis Hopper 1961-1967

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. 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. 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.

One more reason to love Dennis Hopper!

While i was in Sydney i took my pens and watercolours and made a trip to Cockatoo Island out on the harbour. It’s absolutely incredible, a stunning location, full of old abandoned factories and industrial equipment. Hopefully i’ve come close to capturing some of the atmosphere.

September 14th 1974, Stevie Wonder started a two-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with ‘Fulfillingness First Finale’ his second US No.1

Fulfillingness’ First Finale won Grammy Awards for Best Male Pop Vocal, Best Male Rhythm and Blues Vocal Performance (for “Boogie On Reggae Woman”), and Album of the Year in 1974. When Wonder took two years to record his follow-up album, Songs in the Key of Life, this broke his consecutive Grammy streak and led to Paul Simon's famous quote thanking him for not releasing an album in 1975 (when Simon won the Album of the Year award for Still Crazy After All These Years).”  www.wikipedia.org
