'A remarkable collection of photographs taken by Dennis Hopper before he directed Easy Rider, this is a portrait of the decade made from Hopper’s unique position within the art and entertainment world of the time. Hopper’s photographs of pop artists, musicians, Hollywood stars, and civil rights marchers of the 1960’s are synonymous with the attitudes, sensibilities, fashions, and aspirations of that decade. Included are essays by poet Michael McClure, director Terry Southern, and curator Walter Hopps.' (from the publisher's description).
