Here are a few newly unveiled photos from the set of classic Scorsese film “Taxi Driver” taken by photographer Steve Shapiro.

Shapiro described the set as tense saying: Taxi Driver was shot mostly at night in New York, and the sense of the city sort of bore down on it. Also, Robert De Niro, who had spent a month really driving a taxi at night to get into the spirit of the film, maintains his character throughout. When he develops a character, he really becomes that person—both internally and externally—and he maintained that character pretty much on and off the screen. It was a much more tense situation than on The Godfather and many other films I’ve worked on.”
