A prolific photographer and photojournalist, Steve Schapiro has covered major historical events and captured seminal moments, from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1963 march in Selma and Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 presidential campaign, to Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick in The Factory. “It was an incredible time to be a photojournalist, because there was more of an emotional flow—an ability to do more emotional pictures that captured the spirit of a person,” Schapiro has said of working during the ’60s and ’70s. He credits Henri Cartier-Bresson as a major influence on his work, as well as his former teacher W. Eugene Smith. Among the many politicians and celebrities he has photographed are Mia Farrow, Martin Scorcese, and Barbara Streisand.
