Shooting Starman: Intimate David Bowie Photography

Famed photojournalist Steven Schapiro chronicled the rock icon from 1974 to 1976

SteveSchapiro05a SteveSchapiro05b SteveSchapiro05c SteveSchapiro05d SteveSchapiro05eAt 81 years of age, photographer Steve Schapiro has a lifetime of iconic images attributed to his name. His vast experience includes: documenting Robert Kennedy on his presidential bid and capturing the cast on the set of The Godfather; marching on Selma and Washington DC with Martin Luther King, Jr. and immortalizing Robert DeNiro’s Travis Bickle for Taxi Driver; shooting for Life, Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair and Time and lassoing Midnight Cowboys Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman with his lens. As one of the most revered names in photojournalism, Schapiro just released his seventh photobook, Bowie, which chronicles a two year period of shooting the Thin White Duke, from 1974 to 1976.

Bosque del Apache, New Mexico

DanielJCox05a“Bosque del Apache is a premier waterfowl area in North America. Each year, starting in October, hundreds of thousands of snow geese and tens of thousands of sandhill cranes typically migrate to this location to spend the winter. I chose Bosque del Apache for the number of birds I would have access to. Although this season the numbers of birds are down, due to warm weather in the northern part of the US, there were still an ample number of subjects to test the new LEICA DG VARIO-ELMAR 100-400mm / F4.0-6.3 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S.(H-RS100400).”

DanielJCox05b“Auto focus accuracy and speed with the new Leica 100-400mm and the Lumix GX8 as well as the GH4 was exceptional. There’s not much I have to say about this since it was so good. The speed is rocket fast and generally very accurate. I’m guessing future cameras will make this lens even more impressive.”

« ROCK – American Landscapes » par Jean Luc Boetsch

« ROCK – American Landscapes » par Jean Luc Boetsch
“Après avoir passé près de quinze ans à photographier les paysages islandais, je me suis intéressé à d’autres paysages, à d’autres déserts.
J’aime retourner plus particulièrement depuis quelques années, dans le Colorado, l’Arizona, la Californie, le Nevada, le Nouveau Mexique et l’Utah. Je voulais m’imprégner de ces territoires immenses et désertiques, de ces endroits mythiques qui forment l’Ouest américain. …”
