This week saw the passing of the enigmatic actor and director, Dennis Hopper. Hopper first burst onto our screens alongside James Dean in the 1955 classic ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ and then the following year with ‘Giant’. He went on to to gain critical acclaim as a director and co-writer for the 1969 Peter Fonda film ‘Easy Rider’, in which he and Fonda also starred. He went on to make many other appearances, both as an actor and director, in significant films including ‘Apocalypse Now’ and the man who was perhaps the real ‘rebel without a cause’, will no doubt be missed. What you perhaps did not know about Dennis Hopper was that his talents were not limited to the motion picture. Hopper was also a well regarded photographer especially for his celebrity portraits.
