Jerry Schatzberg

Jerry Schatzberg (1927) is an American photographer and movie director. His photographs, mainly of pop/rock and movie celebrities, have appeared in magazines like Vogue, Esquire and McCalls. Probably his best known photograph is the one used for Bob Dylan's iconic album cover Blonde on Blonde. I have selected his shot of Sonny and Cher from 1965, quite representative for his somewhat quirky style. More about Schatzberg in the Wikipedia entry linked to below.
