Steve Schapiro. Taxi Driver Hardback
Edited by Paul Duncan
Taxi Driver has long been regarded as a cinematic milestone, and Robert DeNiro's portrait of a trigger-happy psychopath with a mohawk is widely believed to be one of the greatest performances ever filmed.
Time magazine includes the film in its list of 100 Greatest Movies, saying: "The power of Scorsese's filmmaking grows ever more punishing with the passage of time."Steve Schapiro-whose photographs were featured in TASCHEN's Godfather Family Album-was the special photographer on the set of Taxi Driver, capturing the film's most intense and violent moments from behind the scenes.
This book-more than a film-still book, rather a pure photo book in its own right-features hundreds of unseen images selected from Schapiro's archives, painting a chilling portrait of a deranged gunman in the angry climate of the post-Vietnam era.With a foreword by Martin Scorsese!First published in TASCHEN's limited edition-now available in this standard TASCHEN edition
