Steve Schapiro (born 1934) is an American photographer. He is known for his photographs of key moments of the civil rights movement such as the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom or the Selma to Montgomery marches. He is also known for his portraits of celebrities and movie stills, most importantly from The Godfather (1972) and Taxi Driver (1976).

Schapiro was born in 1934 in New York City. He discovered photography at the age of nine. Soon he decided to devote himself to photojournalism. One of his role models at the time was the French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Schapiro took lessons with W. Eugene Smith, an influential photographer during the Second World War. Smith taught him the technical skills and showed him how to develop his own views of the world and of photography. Schapiro’s work reflects the influence of his teacher.

In 1961 Schapiro began working as a freelance photographer. His photos were published in Life, Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, Time and Paris Match.

The political, cultural and social changes of the 1960s in the United States were an inspiration for Schapiro. He accompanied Robert Kennedy during his presidential campaign and captured key moments of the civil rights movement such as the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom or the Selma to Montgomery marches. Schapiro not only worked in the fields of photojournalism and documentation, but also became a real activist. This is, for instance, visible in his way of documenting the hard lives of immigrant workers from Arkansas he dealt with in 1961.

In the 1970s, Schapiro focused more on film set photography. Having taken photos of Midnight Cowboy (1968), among them also a famous one of Dustin Hoffman, he was hired as a photographer by Paramount Pictures. He photographed on the set of The Godfather (1972) by Francis Ford Coppola with a cast including Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan and Robert Duvall. One of his photographs is of "Marlon Brando and the Cat". Schapiro was also present at the film set of Chinatown (1974) by Roman Polanski. Two years later, Schapiro was – by request of Robert De Niro – hired as a photographer on the set of Martin Scorsese's movie Taxi Driver (1976).

Schapiro captured key moments of modern American history with his photos that also reflect his own social and human awareness.

Steve Schapiro Schapiro's Heroes Signs of the Times

Book Available for Schapiro's Heroes

March 27 through May 10, 2008

Reception for the Artist, Thursday, March 27, 7-9 p.m.

The Fahey/Klein Gallery is pleased to present the photographs of Steve Schapiro in a new exhibition, Schapiro's Heroes, which showcases intimate portraits of iconic American personalities of the Sixties. In the South gallery, we will also be presenting Schapiro's Signs of the Times, featuring unique signs - pickets, banners, and headlines - made in America from the turbulent 1960's to the present day.

Schapiro's Heroes documents his personally selected collection of iconic images from his encounters with artists, writers, actors, athletes, and politicians throughout the second half of the 20th Century. His work ranges from dramatic images of the Civil Rights movement, as he followed the many marches led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his fellow patriots, to archetypal images of several groundbreaking and influential personalities, newsmakers, and thinkers of the era. Striking portraits, from Bobby Kennedy at Berkeley to his many telling images of Andy Warhol and James Baldwin, fill the exhibition with a sense of the depth and breadth of Schapiro's extraordinary life in photography.

Photo-essays have been an important part of journalism since the first halftone ran off press nearly a century ago. Steve Schapiro made his reputation following some of the most important names in American through the mid-20th Century. Assignments lasting from a few days to several months allowed him to penetrate the veil of his subjects' public personas. "You developed a sense of the person's inner drives and expectations," he explains in the introduction to his new book, Schapiro's Heroes. "You got into a rhythm that gave your story a visual and emotional continuity." The exhibition of works from the book celebrates the iconic in his narratives. Signs of the Times continues Schapiro's avid exploration of the profound and ironic in the daily moments of the American experience. One day's headline declaring "The Worst Is Yet to Come" speaks to the most contemporary reader as self-evidently true and also jarring in its mendacity. Another displaced soul, with her child and her frustration, stands in front of an empty super-market, holding her cardboard scrawled with marker: "It's Got to be Somebody's Fault!" Words rendered and held by frustrated, desperate, and angry people echo and resist the zeitgeist of America in the 20th Century in this exhibition of modern anxiety on display.

Steve Schapiro's career in photography began in 1960 with a personal documentary project on Arkansas migrant workers, which The New Times Magazine published as a cover story. The coverage of this situation, which garnered no national attention before his expose, resulted in bringing electricity to a farm camp, which had previously used only kerosene lamps.

In the 1960's and 1970's, Schapiro traveled extensively throughout the United States covering stories on American culture and politics. In the 1970's and 1980's, Schapiro continued his documentary photograph and also worked in Hollywood creating iconic movie stills for Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather, Martin Scorcese's Taxi Driver, and John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy, and he later created album covers for icons like Barbara Streisand.

Schapiro's photographs have graced the covers of many of the world's most prominent magazines, including Life, Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Look, Sports Illustrated, People, Paris Match, and The New York Times Magazine.

Today, Steve Schapiro is planning the launch of an Internet photo magazine, in his words, "to put the emotional and socially conscious photo-essays of our youth back in to society."


Steve Schapiro lives in Chicago with his wife, Maura.
