DESCRIPTION

Jerry Schatzberg’s early career began in the 1950’s with photography assignments in notable publications such as Vogue, McCalls, Esquire, Glamour and Life. His rise as a world-class portrait photographer was marked by his intimate and emblematic images of emerging talents and thinkers of the 1960’s, including Bob Dylan, Fidel Castro, The Rolling Stones, Andy Warhol, Faye Dunaway, Catherine Deneuve and many others.

Shatzberg made his directorial debut in the 1970’s with ‘Puzzle of a Downfall Child’ starring Faye Dunaway and soon followed by ‘The Panic in Needle Park’ starring Al Pacino. Gene Hackman co-starred with Pacino in ‘Scarecrow’ ,which won the Golden Palm at The Cannes Film Festival in 1973.
