We've been saddened by the passing of a tireless activist, great inspiration and wonderful photographer, John 'Hoppy' Hopkins. Here he is at his wedding to Suzy Creamcheese, just after his release from prison in 1967 (he served 6 months for possession of cannabis and allowing it to be smoked in his home). A great advocate of CND, founder of International Times and mainstay of the London counter-culture from the early 1960s onwards, Hoppy will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved him.
