Jerry Schatzberg

Born in 1927 in New York, Jerry Schatzberg is a world renowned photographer and film maker.

His images have graced the pages of Vogue, Esquire and Glamour, and many others, launching Schatzberg to a similar celebrity status as many of his subjects. His success continued in the seventies to include film, participating in the renaissance of American cinema and earning him the Golden Palm award at the Cannes film festival in 1989.
