Peter Schlesinger

Peter Schlesinger was introduced to photography by his father, who also had a keen interest in the subject. When he was 20, Schlesinger left California and moved to London with David Hockney, armed with nothing but his very first camera given to him by his father. From that point on he took this camera absolutely everywhere, photographing absolutely everybody he came into contact with and built up a huge archive of the most infamous portraits of the stars. In the early 70’s, Schlesinger accompanied Ossie Clark on several family journeys and these intimate shots have been included in Proud Galleries’ Ossie Clark: The King of Kings Road Reigns Again.
