Taxi Driver has long been regarded as a cinematic milestone, and Robert DeNiro's portrait of a near-psychotic loner gunman 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 iconic moments and actors behind the scenes. This book features hundreds of images selected from Schapiro's archives, offering fans a trip back in time to witness the making of Scorsese's masterpiece.
