"I pity the French Cinema because it has no money. I pity the American Cinema because it has no ideas." - Jean-Luc Godard
In Dreams. Scenes from the Archive adds to our understanding of Dennis Hopper’s personal vision as an artist by tracing the threads of Hopper’s life through photography, and connecting his roles as an actor, husband, father, and photographer.
In Dreams eschews Hopper’s iconic stand-alone images and instead looks to distill the archive into a connected set of photographs that offer new impressions and stories. Themes emerge, visual rhymes are made, and characters come and go while the reader is invited along for the journey.
