35 Breathtaking Portraits of Celebrities in the 1960s and 1970s Taken by Julian Wasser

As Julian Wasser tells it, when he first began shooting for magazines like Time and Life in the 1960s, celebrity-obsessed photographers did not yet exist. With his Nikon in tow, Wasser was given unprecedented access to actors, musicians, politicians, and writers—everyone from fresh-faced, teenage Jodie Foster to silver-screen heavyweights like Steve McQueen and Jack Nicholson.

Looking through these collected images, we see not only a more relaxed Hollywood, but also America during a dramatic cultural and political transition.
