Previously unseen photographs from Scorsese’s masterpiece
Taxi Driver has long been regarded as a cinematic milestone, and Robert DeNiro’s portrait of a trigger-happy psychopath with a mohawk is widely believed to be one of the greatest performances ever filmed.

This book—more than a film still book but a pure photo book on its own—features hundreds of unseen images selected from Schapiro’s archives, painting a chilling portrait of a deranged gunman in the angry climate of the post-Vietnam era.
