Time Out says

Get a glimpse inside New York photographer and director Jerry Schatzberg's studio from the 1960s, where he shot some extraordinary portraits of icons such as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Sharon Tate, Catherine Deneuve and Carmen De Lavallade. The studio was set up in 1957 a few steps from Fotografiska at 333 Park Avenue South and became the setting for Schatzberg's playful portraiture that "betray his unquenchable, almost maniacal search for glamour, for glimmers that elevate the geniuses of his time out of their accomplishments and into a pictorially extraordinary ordinary."

Jerry Schatzberg, born in the Bronx, has had his work published in VOGUE, McCall’s, Esquire, Glamour, and LIFE magazines and he has photographed many of the leading artistic personalities of the 1960s including The Rolling Stones, Andy Warhol, and Faye Dunaway. Schatzberg later started a career in filmmaking. In 1970, Schatzberg directed his first feature film Puzzle of a Downfall Child which starred his former girlfriend Faye Dunaway. Schatzberg continued to direct more than a dozen feature films, including The Panic in Needle Park in 1971 with Al Pacino, Scarecrow in 1973 with Gene Hackman and Pacino and No Small Affair in 1984 with Demi Moore.
