About this Item

Neuware - Robert Kennedy sei der eindruckvollste Politiker gewesen, dem er je begegnet sei. Und Johnny Depp sei wahnsinnig fotogen. Er muss es wissen, denn er hat sie alle fotografiert: Steve Schapiros ausdrucksstarke Porträts von Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali, Barbara Streisand, Marlon Brando, David Bowie oder Jodie Foster und Robert de Niro gehören zu unserem Bildgedächtnis. Neben seiner Arbeit mit den Stars begleitete Schapiro ( geb.1934 in Brooklyn) die großen politischen und gesellschaftlichen Umwälzungen der 1960er- und 1970er-Jahre mit der Kamera. Auch diese Bilder haben den Status von Ikonen erreicht. Eine Auswahl von Fotografien aus über 50 Jahren stellt der prächtige Band vor. Schapiro beschreibt in begleitenden Texten, wie es zu den Aufnahmen kam, und schildert lebendig und humorvoll seine Erlebnisse. Neben bisher unveröffentlichten Arbeiten präsentiert die Publikation auch neue Werke des Altmeisters. Robert Kennedy was the most impressive politician he ever met. And Johnny Depp is incredibly photogenic. Steve Schapiro (born1934 in Brooklyn) ought to know, because he s actually photographed them all: his expressive portraits of Martin Luther King, Jr., Muhammad Ali, Barbara Streisand, Marlon Brando, David Bowie, Jodie Foster, and Robert de Niro are part of our collective visual memory. Besides his work with the stars, Schapiro and his camera accompanied the greatest political and social upheavals of the 1960s and 70s. These photographs have also achieved iconic status. A selection of photos taken over a period of more than fifty years is presented in this volume. In the accompanying essays Schapiro explains how they were created, describing his experiences in a lively, humorous way. Along with previously unpublished photographs, the book also features new works by the old master. 240 pp. Englisch, Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783775734264

About this title


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 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.


In Stever Schapiro: Then and Now, a retrospective art book, we follow the photographer through the glamourous , playful, and bizarre past before settling into our foreboding reality. (Paul Flynn Out Magazine)
