Drugstore Camera is the latest book of photographs by the late Hollywood rebel Dennis Hopper. The 96-page monograph centres around a series of unreleased images from his adopted hometown of Taos, New Mexico, shot with disposable cameras and processed by drugstore photo labs. "This clothbound collection documents Hopper's friends and family among the ruins and open vistas of the desert landscape, female nudes in shadowy interiors, road trips to and from his home state of Kansas and impromptu still lifes of discarded objects. These images, capturing iconic individuals, wide-open Western terrain and drug-addled fun, create a captivating view of the '60s and '70s that combines political idealism and optimism with California cool."
