Published in “Vogue,” “McCall’s,” “Esquire,” “Glamour,” and “Life Magazine” in the 1960s, Jerry Schatzberg captured intimate portraits of his generation’s most notable artists, celebrities, and thinkers (from Bob Dylan to Martha Graham).
In the 1970s, Schatzberg made a foray into film direction. His most widely acclaimed film was “The Panic in Needle Park” (1971), starring Al Pacino.

At the time of the divorce, Schatzberg was widely known as Faye Dunaway’s fiancé. In 1969, Dunaway left Schatzberg for actor Marcello Mastroianni. Schatzberg then married the French-American actress Maureen Kerwin in 1983, and they divorced in 1998.
