The Lost Album: Photos by Dennis Hopper


A collection of four hundred (!) vintage prints taken by Dennis Hopper back in the 60s was discovered in 2010, and now it is currently in exhibit at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin, Germany. Find out more after the jump!

Dennis Hopper may be more known for his acting and directing credits, but it is not secret that he also has an eye for taking amazing photographs.

In fact, two months after his passing in 2010, a collection of over 400 photographs – both negatives and prints – was found tucked away in his home in Venice Beach, California.

The collection is reported to have been exhibited only once in the past — at the Fort Worth Art Center Museum in 1969 – but now, they can be seen in exhibit at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin until December 12, 2012.

The photos could also be seen in the book compilation Dennis Hopper: The Lost Album which is available to pre-order.
