Steve Schapiro (*1934 in Brooklyn) has not only taken portraits of prominent politicians such as Robert Kennedy, but of public figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as stars like Johnny Depp, David Bowie, Jodie Foster, and Robert de Niro. His pictures subtly reflect the social upheavals of the 1960s and ‘70s. The master photographer also has an eye for the quiet, hidden signs of the times. His camera focuses on scenes and people from everyday, ordinary life – for instance, the children pictured in our Edition Hatje Cantz, photographed during Halloween in Brooklyn. Playing dress-up in the streets, they come to symbolize the paradoxes between authenticity and disguise, familiarity and anonymity in a metropolis.
