35 Gorgeous Photos of '60s Classic Beauties Taken by Jerry Schatzberg

Born 1927 and grew up in the Bronx, New York, photographer and film director Jerry Schatzberg photographed for magazines such as Vogue, Esquire and McCalls. He made his debut as a feature film director with 1970's Puzzle of a Downfall Child starring Faye Dunaway.
“It's the type of business where you are always extending yourself. You have to buy equipment and supplies before you can afford it. You work 24 hours a day: you shoot in the daytime, you process in the evening, you print all night and at about four o’clock you go to Bickford’s for a cup of coffee to sustain yourself.” - Jerry Schatzberg

Schatzberg went on to direct films such as The Panic in Needle Park, which starred Al Pacino in 1971, Scarecrow, which shared the grand prize at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, The Seduction of Joe Tynan, Honeysuckle Rose with Willie Nelson, Misunderstood (based on a novel by Florence Montgomery) and Street Smart in 1987 which earned Morgan Freeman his first Oscar Nomination.

And, despite his advanced age, he still plans to produce. His current project: perhaps a new book of portraits or candid snapshots from the New York subway. With this work, will recognition finally come to stay?
“I've never been a good salesman,” Schatzberg replies. “Maybe that will come after my death, like it does for many.”
 Take a look at these gorgeous photographs of classic beauties that Schatzberg shot in the 1960s.
