Famed photojournalist Steve Schapiro and his son Theophilus Donoghue have collaborated on seventy thirty, a photo project published by Damiani that is 70% Schapiro, 30% Donoghue.
Seventy thirty depicts the various faces and expressions of humanity, from metropolitans to migrants, unseen homeless to celebrities, such as Robert De Niro, Muhammad Ali, René Magritte, Janis Joplin, and Andy Warhol. Schapiro photographs early New York skateboarders while Donoghue documents current Colombian breakdancers. Alternately profound and playful, Schapiro and Donoghue’s photographs capture a vast range of human emotion and experience. For this project, Schapiro selected images from the 60s civil rights movement and, with Donoghue, provided photos from today’s Black Lives Matter protests and environmental rallies. Apart from numerous stateside locations, their project includes images from India, Italy, Nicaragua, Panama, Costa Rica, Colombia, and Ecuador. Together father and son provide a touching overview of humanity throughout the world from the 1950s to present day.
