"...youth and fashion, both fleeting by nature, are
frozen, perfectly preserved for fashionistas and photography buffs alike."
~BookPage

"...in this collection, (Schatzberg's) work perfectly conveys the drama, candor and elegance of the era."
~Metro Source NY

"...Schatzberg's candid photographs...captures the short tempers, big egos and high drama of a world on the brink of a fashion revolution." ~ForbesLife

"...the perfect coffee table book for all you voyeuristic fashionistas who swoon for City of Lights golden age nostalgia." ~Hollywood Life

Other reviews have described how this book does not show you much of the collections of Dior or Yves St Laurent for 1962. So that was disappointing to me.

But this book also fails to deliver much in terms of a photoessay. The photos were taken for an Esquire Magazine article, and judging from a snapshot montage at the back of the book, those photos would work well in small-size format with blurbs of text. Instead the book shows you grainy blow-ups, coffee-table book size, that fail to hold their own when enlarged and left alone without text. There are no accompanying blurbs of text next to the photos, which would have been very helpful.

Instead (and this put me over the edge), SOME of the snapshots in the montage at the back of the book are numbered and given descriptors. So if you are going thru the book and wondering what the big photo is about--and this happened to me often--you have to go searching in the back for the snapshot of it, find the number, then find the descriptor. If there is a descriptor. Many photos in the book lack any descriptor, so you are left wondering forever who the people are and what the photo is supposed to be about. Frankly, no photo book should ever do this to its readers.

If you are a fan of Jerry Schatzberg, you might like this book. But I don't think this book does justice to his photos.

Unfortunately I purchased this book before my friend left the 1 star review. I was very disappointed to find no fashion in this book. Annoying blurry close-ups...seemed like an attempt to mimic ALLURE, the Diana Vreeland book. Trying to capture the feel of a Dior collection, rather than the actual fashion. I can imagine what it feels like without your blurry pictures, thank you. I want to see the collections.

This book is more about photography than it is about the COLLECTIONS as stated on the title. It's a lot of atmospheric photos (the audience, the backstage). I want to see the collection.
