Steve Schapiro: Then and Now

Text by Matthias Harder, Steve Shapiro, Lonnie Ali.

Steve Schapiro: Then and NowSteve 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 René 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.

Steve Schapiro: Then and Now

Steve Schapiro: Then and Now

"It was 7 PM on a Thursday night. I was in my loft on Lafayette Street going through recent contact sheets from the Bobby Kennedy campaign when I got the call from Life magazine.
Martin Luther King, Jr. had been shot.
I needed to get to Memphis immediately.
I arrived early the next morning, April 5th. I first went to the boarding house bathroom from where the shot had been fired. I noticed a dark, ominous handprint on the wall above the bathtub in which the assailant had stood, leveling his gun on the window sill. I was sure that it was the assassin's fingerprints. That hand print was published as a full-page image the following week in Life magazine."
Featured image, "Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Flag," was made during more optimistic times, when photographer Steve Schapiro was covering Dr. King's Selma March, Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965. It is one of many historical photographs—including the handprint photograph to which Schapiro refers, above—reproduced in the photographer's newly released retrospective monograph, Then and Now. continue to blog

Los Angeles Times Recommends 'Steve Shapiro: Then and Now'

Los Angeles Times Recommends 'Steve Shapiro: Then and Now'

In the February 24 Los Angeles Times, Liesl Bradner reviews noted celebrity photographer and photojournalist Steve Shapiro's new collection, Then and Now. "Of the nearly 150 photos, only 12 pictures have been published before, quite extraordinary for a photographer who has worked on more than 200 films and created 100 movie posters… One of the more interesting discoveries he made was an unearthed negative of a young Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) meeting his future wife Lonnie for the first time in 1963. On assignment for Sports Illustrated, the black-and-white image Schapiro shot reveals a shy, ponytailed 6-year-old girl, just one of a gaggle of neighborhood kids hanging out on the stoop with Ali outside his parent's house in Kentucky." continue to blog
