« Scratching the Surface: Photographs by Dennis Hopper » at the Gagosian Gallery in Rome.
The first major photography exhibition by Dennis Hopper in Rome displays images from the 60s and 70s, inspired by the TV series Drugstore Camera.
Whilst his reputation as an actor never ceases to climb, Hopper attempts to capture the rebel spirit of these years in Harlem, Los Angeles or Tijuana. Across almost a hundred vintage prints, including portraits of artists, actors and music legends, Dennis Hopper evokes the portrait of a particularly creative and dynamic era. And yet his images also give a new dimension to Hopper’s character, attuned landscapes, atmospheres and an ambient optimism.
Until 8th November.
