A brand new book from the folks over at powerHouse by one of the most respected American documentary photographers Steve Schapiro. Schapiro’s Heroes brings together an extraordinary collection of stories in the photo-journalistic tradition of people who have shaped our lives, our politics, and our tastes with behind-the-scenes photographs, we visit the young Muhammad Ali and his Monopoly set, followed everywhere by the neighborhood kids; glimpse the warm family life and campaign of Robert Kennedy; see Andy Warhol in photographs never before published; watch Ray Charles perform; visit the set with Samuel Beckett; and march alongside Martin Luther King Jr. This is a super dope book that would look nice in the household, and you’ll for sure rack up points when that one night stand you brought home is over, that is if she’s not completely piss drunk.
