...a new book of Dennis's striking photos from his life in Taos.--Kareem Rashed "Departures " These images, capturing iconic individuals and wide-open Western terrain, create a captivating view of the 60s and 70s that combines political idealism and optimism with California cool.--The Editors "loeildelaphotographie.com " Damiani's book is a small but revealing slice of Hopper's prodigious photographic output. These snapshots, taken with an Instamatic camera and processed at drugstore photo labs, celebrate the rugged landscape of Taos, New Mexico, where he moved in the late 1960s and is now buried. Surreal still lifes and casual photos of friends capture a free-form counterculture existence in which any division between art and life disappears.--Wendy Smith "Sotheby's Magazine " The photos themselves are black and white, modestly sized on a letter-size page, and handsomely bound. The hardcover binding is beautifully done with large black stamped letters of the title over a photo on the cover, back, and spine.--Richard Rivera "New York Journal of Books " Flipping through the photo album in Drugstore Camera, out this month, you can feel the blinding glare of the sun in your eyes, the layer of sweat and dust forming on your skin. It's an impulsive postcard from the late 60s, streaked with sex and sun-beckoning baby oil, and we can't get enough of it.--Alex Beggs "VanityFair.com " The presentation of the photographs in the book, with faded borders on absentmindedly-developed shots, calls attention to the physicality of the images themselves and gives them a certain familiarity. It is this familiarity that adds interest to the book, showing that the world through the eyes of a legend looks eerily similar to our own.--Sara Cravatts "American Photo " The collection is a bewitching time capsule of an era.--Hannah Lack "Another Magazine "
