Jerry Schatzberg, 25th & Park
Members First Look
About the Event
Please join us for an exclusive Members only first look at Jerry Schatzberg’s 25th & Park.
25th and Park is an exhibition dedicated to highlighting the New York work of the photographer and director Jerry Schatzberg (b. 1927) and spotlights the artist’s contributions to the history of photography and the cultural ’60s revolution.
Schatzberg started as a photographer’s assistant for Bill Helburn, whose studio was diagonally across from 333 Park Avenue South, where Schatzberg set up his own legendary studio in 1956. Along these few blocks of Park Avenue South real estate course the histories of US photography, pop music, fashion, cinema, theater, literature, and 1960s New York (from Max’s Kansas City to Elaine’s). The Schatzberg Studio became a veritable salon for dozens of luminaries who were catapulted, by way of Schatzberg’s lens, into icons of the era. Dylan and Hendrix. The Beatles and the Stones. Aretha Franklin and Sharon Tate. And scores more.
