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