'Lost' Hopper prints go on show (bbc)


More than 400 rediscovered prints by Easy Rider actor Dennis Hopper are exhibited in Berlin


The photos, which include images of James Brown and Peter Fonda, were found in storage boxes when Hopper's house was cleared after his death in 2010.

The exhibition, Dennis Hopper - The Lost Album, also includes photos of the US civil rights movement and America's arts and music scene in the mid-1960s.

His daughter said it offers an "intimate" glimpse of his youth.

The black-and-white small format photos were taken between 1961 and 1967, before Hopper directed and starred in Easy Rider, the film that re-established his faltering career.
