Steve Schapiro started his career as a freelance photographer in 1961 during the height of the Civil Rights movement, working for publications including Life, Rolling Stone and Newsweek. Schapiro says it was "the golden age of photojournalism", with the next decade putting his lens in line with some of the most pivotal moments in US history including Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 march in Selma and later, King’s abandoned motel room after his assassination, as well as the “Summer of Love” in Haight-Asbury and Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 presidential campaign. 

His portfolio reads like a wish list of people you'd kill to have dinner with including De Niro, Woody Allen, Truman Capote, Dustin Hoffman, Paul Newman, Barbara Streisand, Andy Warhol and heeeeeeaps more. Schapiro's knack for capturing his subjects in incredibly candid and intimate moments combined with the moments being at such fascinating times in their lives makes for some serious compelling photography.
