Jerry Schatzberg is notably known for his iconic and intimate portraits of famous figures, for example, the defining cover of Blonde and Blonde featuring a scowling Bob Dylan. However, before that sudden switch, Schatzberg was a fashion photographer, trained by the famous Alexey Brodovitch. Here are some of his shots taken for magazines such as Vogue, Esquire, Glamour and McCall’s during the ‘50s and ‘60s:
