Biography

Jerry Schatzberg est né dans une famille juive de fourreurs et a grandi dans le Bronx. Il est photographe de mode estimé dans les années 1960 pour des magazines tels que Vogue, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, Life. Une de ses réalisations photographiques les plus connues est la pochette de l'album Blonde on Blonde de Bob Dylan (1966); un ouvrage regroupant les photos de Dylan prises par Schatzberg est publié en 2006 par Genesis Publications sous le nom Thin Wild Mercury.
En 1970, il réalise son premier long métrage Portrait d'une enfant déchue (Puzzle of a Downfall Child) où Faye Dunaway interprète une ancienne mannequin célèbre, dont la vie est entrée dans une spirale infernale de toxicomanie et de dépression nerveuse. Son deuxième film, Panique à Needle Park (The Panic in Needle Park, 1971) dépeint la vie d'un groupe d'héroïnomanes à New York. Son troisième film, L'Épouvantail (Scarecrow) remporte le grand prix au Festival de Cannes 1973.
Il est exposé aux Rencontres d'Arles (France) en 2008 et nominé au prix Découverte.
Il était l'époux de la comédienne franco-américaine Maureen Kerwin.
