Steve Schapiro: Photojournalist Who Bore Witness to Some of the Nation’s Most Significant Political and Cultural Moments

From a New York Times obit by Katharine Q. Seelye headlined “Steve Schapiro, Photojournalist Who Bore Witness, Dies at 87”:

Steve Schapiro, a photojournalist and social documentarian who bore witness to some of the nation’s most significant political and cultural moments and movements, starting in the 1960s with the historic struggle for racial equality across the Jim Crow South, died in Chicago….

Over a six-decade career, Mr. Schapiro trained his camera’s eye on an astonishing array of people across the American landscape as he sought to capture the emotional heart of his subjects, whether they were narcotics users in Harlem, migrant workers in Arkansas or movie luminaries in Hollywood.
