Taxi Driver


This title features previously unseen photographs from one of cinema's greatest movies. Excoriated by large sections of the press on its release in 1976, "Time" magazine bemoaned its 'thoroughly depressing realism', "Taxi Driver" which has long been regarded as a cinematic milestone, and Robert DeNiro's portrait of a near-psychotic loner gunman acknowledged as one of the greatest performances ever filmed. Even "Time" has since come around, and now includes the film in its list of 100 Greatest Movies, saying: 'The power of Scorsese's filmmaking grows ever more punishing with the passage of time.' Steve Schapiro was the special photographer on the set of "Taxi Driver", the movie that made Robert DeNiro a star: and 95 per cent of his photos were never published - until now. This edition is limited to 1000 copies, numbered and signed by Steve Schapiro, and includes a foreword by Martin Scorsese. According to unit photographer Steve Schapiro, Robert DeNiro didn't like to be photographed, but put up with it. 'DeNiro is easy on screen, but off screen he is shy and embarrassed when photographed and always had a goofy smile.' Nonetheless, Schapiro's photography immortalized the young actor in one of his finest and most powerful roles. This book features hundreds of images selected from Schapiro's "Taxi Driver" archive, 95 per cent of which have never previously been published. This title includes a foreword by Martin Scorsese! It is also available in two Art Editions of 100 copies each, with a signed and numbered original photographic print.

David Bowie


At the very apex of David Bowie's spectacular rise to rock n' roll fame and glory, photographer Steve Schapiro seized a rare invitation from Bowie's manager for a private photo session with the pop star in Los Angeles in 1974. Bowie, by 1974, was a man of many faces and as many albums, had already lived the life of Ziggy Stardust and launched Alladin Sane with albums Pin Ups and Diamond Dogs soon to come. A musical force to be reckoned with, Bowie was also widely regarded as a fashion icon, pushing the envelope of sexuality and style and having created an internationally renowned persona. The mostly never-before-published images in Schapiro's rare collection represent Bowie at his most creative and inspired self and present a glimpse into the intimacy that Schapiro and Bowie shared during their time together. As Schapiro tells it: "From the moment Bowie arrived, we seemed to hit it off. Incredibly intelligent, calm, and filled with ideas, he talked a lot about Alistair Crowley whose esoteric writings he was heavily into at the time. When David heard that I had photographed Buster Keaton, one of his greatest heroes, we instantly became friends." The first photo session started at four in the afternoon and went through the night till dawn. Bowie went through countless costume changes, each more incredible than the last and each seemed to turn him into a totally different person. Bowie relentlessly created these unique characters, each seemingly alive in their own charismatic space for Schapiro to create visual images to complement their very existence and turn them into iconic images for all time. Bowie and Schapiro kidded and laughed about shooting a series of close-up portraits on a putrid green background because they felt it was the worst possible background color for a magazine, and so they did on this lark - with the image eventually becoming a People magazine cover. The last image they made was at four in the morning to wrap up the marathon session when they went outside to shoot Bowie on his motorcycle - the sun hadn't yet risen and the shot was lit dramatically by only the headlights of a car. This image remains one of Schapiro's favorites of all time and is certain to live on in posterity.

Ali


In June, 1963, on assignment from Sports Illustrated, peerless portrait photographer Steve Schapiro traveled to Louisville, Kentucky to spend some time with the young Olympic champion boxer Cassius Clay, and accompany him on a road trip to New York City. At 21, Clay was yet to adopt the mantel of Muhammad Ali, but his boastful persona, intelligence, black pride, and sharp tongue were already fully formed. Over the course of their five days together, Schapiro—a master at developing trust and capturing unguarded intimacy on film—revealed both sides of the young Ali: the one side posing and preening for the camera, ever conscious of his image; the other, unguarded and unselfconscious, in candid images of the young fighter at home with his family and immersed in his community and neighborhood. Ali collects the best of Schapiro's images of the late fighter; many in print for the first time ever. They offer a glimpse of a star on the rise. It is an indelible portrait of the early life of one of the most talented, graceful, controversial, athletic, and influential American figures of the 20th century.
