Dennis Hopper, Wallace Berman on Triumph Motorcycle, gelatin silver print, 1964. Dennis Hopper studied at both the Kansas City Art Institute and the Actors Studio in New York. His career in Hollywood was marked by periods of both success and rejection—in the early 1960’s, Hopper turned to photography after he was blacklisted by the director Henry Hathaway. His notable photographic works include portraits of Martin Luther King Jr., Jane Fonda, and Andy Warhol, as well as images taken during the Civil Rights March in Selma. Wallace “Wally” Berman (1926 – 1976) was an American experimental filmmaker, assemblage and collage artist and a crucial figure in the history of post-war California art.
