Steve Schapiro (born 1934) is the photographer behind countless now-classic portraits of rock stars, film stars and politicians from the 1960s and 70s. He has worked as a film set photographer on more than 200 Hollywood movies; he has designed several iconic film posters, most notably for "Midnight Cowboy," "Taxi Driver" and "The Godfather Part III"; and as a documentary photographer, he recorded the political tumult of the 1960s and 1970s, in photo essays on narcotics addiction, civil rights protests and presidential campaigns. This volume looks back at Schapiro's half-century career, reproducing famous images alongside new and unseen work. It includes portraits of the stars as never before seen: Robert De Niro, in full "Taxi Driver" combat costume, posed in front of his cab with Mohican and an improbably chirpy smile; Jack Nicolson, nose bandaged, tongue out at the camera on the set of "Chinatown"; Marlon Brando, grinning with theatrical devilishness while being made up for "The Godfather." Also gathered here are portraits of artists such as Rene Magritte, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol; directors such as Woody Allen, Francis Ford Coppola, John Huston, Roman Polanski, Otto Preminger and Orson Welles; film stars such as Johnny Depp, Jodie Foster, Dustin Hoffman, Sophia Loren, Steve McQueen, Paul Newman and Robert Redford; musicians such as David Bowie, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Nico, Diana Ross, Ike and Tina Turner and Frank Zappa; and images from Schapiro's political photojournalism, with portraits of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, among others.
