Overview

A collection of rarely seen black-and-white photographs taken of women in the 1950s and 1960s, captured by the renowned New York City fashion photographer and filmmaker. Designed by Ruth Ansel, this elegantly produced volume captures the romance and glamour of women in the 1950s and 1960s. A mix of fashion and portraiture, it includes intimate and striking portraits of Nico, Faye Dunaway, Edie Sedgwick, Sharon Tate, and Catherine Deneuve. Jerry Schatzberg’s moody snapshots of a more innocent and whimsical New York on the brink of the important societal changes of the sixties form a compellingly nostalgic portrait of a stylish moment. Images of jetsetters at an airport terminal, lovers embracing in Central Park, and a woman waltzing in the street in the Financial District portray a time as well as a style. A New York City native, Schatzberg documented the period with the insider’s sensibility of Woody Allen or Martin Scorsese, but with the high-fashion style of Irving Penn and Richard Avedon. With a keen eye for the magic of the in-between moment, Schatzberg stealthily captured the elegance and beauty of a woman as her role was redefined in the sixties, while at the same time retaining an element of humor and surprise.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Women Then thrusts us back to a time when it was ladylike to wear a hat in public and glamorous to accompany it with a cigarette." ~New York Times, T Magazine

“Heart-stopping portraits of Catherine Deneuve, Faye Dunaway, Edie Sedgwick, Sharon Tate…make us nostalgic for a time when women realized that stule (and the art of seduction) was more about sophistication and subtlety than over-the-top, overtly sexual comportment. Be sure to spend some time with Faye Dunaway’s poetic afterward in the book…” ~Elle

"Evocative images of the '50s and '60s." ~Harper's Bazaar

"...Jerry Schatzberg was a highly touted fashion photographer with editorial spreads in magazines such as Vogue and Esquire. It's this period of his career that is the focus of Women Then, which showcases Schatzberg's rarely-seen black-and-white photographs from the 1950s and '60s. Featuring timeless images of iconic femme fatales such as Edie Sedgwick, Nico, and Catherine Deneuve, Schatzberg's photographs are a reminder that It Girls existed during an era of social and political change. Fittingly, it's '60s icon Faye Dunaway who writes the book's afterword." ~NYLON

"...this new collection of Schatzberg's photographs from 1954 to 1969 capture[s] a unique moment in the history of women. And while today the images appear downright nostalgic, at the time they were revolutionary." ~Quest

"With this body of work Schatzberg preserves the sophisticated and very adult elegance and beauty of women in the now popular Mad Men period." ~Vidcat.com

“A connoisseur of gorgeous women with an unmatched eye for beauty, Schatzberg’s alluring new book Women Then: Photographs 1954-1969, pays homage to 15 years of favorites… It also contains a few surprises, including the Rolling Stones dressed in drag.” ~Luxist
