women then...

Jerry Schatzberg was in all the right places during the 1950s and 1960s, mingling with Aretha Franklin, Catherine Deneuve, Faye Dunaway, Francis Ford Coppola and Andy Warhol's Factory crowd at all the NYC hangouts. As a photographer, he created some of the most iconic images from the era, including the blurred photo on the cover of Bob Dylan's Blonde On Blonde album. His recently released book, Women Then: Photographs 1954-1969, celebrates the moody, glamorous and elegant women he photographed. In the words of Schatzberg himself: "Everybody looks back to the 60s and says, ‘Oh, those were the days.’ And they probably were the days. There was a different kind of elegance then, a different spirit of life.”
