Peter Schlesinger's photographic journey from swinging London to glorious Hollywood

The photographs of artist Peter Schlesinger are a visual diary of an extraordinary life that has intersected with some of the brightest names in the worlds of art, fashion and society. Schlesinger's remarkable journey began in 1966 when as an 18-year-old student at UCLA he met the artist David Hockney. The two moved to London, where Schlesinger was introduced to the city's fashionable bohemian society. There, as well as on trips, Schlesinger met and photographed some of the great personalities of the day, including Cecil Beaton, Paloma Picasso, Grace Coddington, Tina Chow, Christopher Isherwood and Manolo Blahnik, to name just a few. This beautifully produced book presents an overview of 30 years of photographic work from Schlesinger's archives. In addition to intimate portraits, it includes Schlesinger's evocative still lifes, which convey the romance, humor and elegance of their time. This is the first monograph to present the full range of Schlesinger's photographic work.
Peter Schlesinger was born and raised in California. His sculptures and paintings have been exhibited widely and are in the collections of the Parrish Art Museum, The Farnsworth Museum, and Manchester Gallery of Art, England. He currently resides in New York City with his partner, the photographer Eric Boman.

A Photographic Memory is an exquisite art object in its own right... A testament to the cultural flowering of that time, A Photographic Memory conveys all the fugitive, ferocious beauty of the new.

Peter Schlesinger: A Photographic Memory 1968-1989

Peter Schlesinger: A Photographic Memory 1968-1989, Reto Guntli backflip"I first saw Peter’s pictures in his previous book of photographs, 2003’s Checkered Past," Hilton Als writes in A Photographic Memory 1968-1989, published by Damiani and featured in this weekend's T Magazine. "What impressed me there, first, was the color, the nuance of his pinks and blues; they were not too far off from the vibrant but almost-faded colors one saw in color field paintings, or a delicate, slightly worn color film. His prints also reminded me of the color that haunts memory—colors that are present but receding. Looking at those pictures I was a child again, haunting my sisters' rooms in my sometimes black and white world as they pulled their stockings on before dancing on and on into the night."

Peter Schlesinger: A Photographic Memory 1968-1989

Peter Schlesinger: A Photographic Memory 1968-1989, Amanda Lear"The world was a much more open place when Peter started taking photographs, and his subject’s fame was not so much a given, but it is part of the group’s heritage," Hilton Als writes in A Photographic Memory 1968-1989, just out from Damiani and featured in this weekend's T Magazine. "Peter’s subjects wear their privilege lightly and Peter photographs it lightly, without judgment, because he was a young man when these pictures were made, and you can’t be an artist and young without being something of a romantic. I wonder if he thought during those years that the times he photographed would elapse and evolve into other times, and I wonder, too, if he knew that one day some of the people he loved would no longer be here, making him and the world a different place, too." Featured photograph is captioned, "Amanda Lear on my terrace, London, 1973." continue to blog

Peter Schlesinger: A Photographic Memory 1968-1989

Peter Schlesinger: A Photographic Memory 1968-1989 at BOOKMARCBOOKMARC will host artist and photographer Peter Schlesinger signing copies of A Photographic Memory 1968-1989, Schlesinger's riveting new photo collection from Damiani, Thursday, November 12 from 6-8PM at the Melrose Place store. Hilton Als writes, "The work of the young is to be alive to the present, and the present after that. That’s the work of the artist, too—to immerse himself in the moment. Peter’s pictures document not only his openness to the current events and fleeting wisdom of the past, but to what he saw and what he made of it."
