“When I started, I was shooting everything around me, all the time. I was shooting reality but I liked the idea of shooting flat on, having no depth of field and in the process creating photographs that were similar to paintings. So I was a product of Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. As a result, there are a lot of common objects in my photographs, everyday things I would come across that would become abstract if you isolated them. The abstract photography was really all that I was interested in at the time and I did more of that than probably anything else.” - Dennis Hopper
ROBERT BERMAN GALLERY is pleased to present works by Dennis Hopper.
From 1988 to 1989, Hopper chose his favorite images amongst his vast library of photographs taken in the 1960s to produce a very limited edition of signed silkscreen prints in gold and silver monotone on archival paper and unique screenprints on aluminum - many of which are published by Taschen in the book, Dennis Hopper: Photographs 1961-1967.
This exhibition features roughly half of the 18 selected shots documenting Los Angeles and New York City street scenes.
