Peter Schlesinger: A Photographic Memory 1968-1989

Text by Peter Schlesinger, Hilton Als.

Featured image is reproduced from <i>Peter Schlesinger: A Photographic Memory 1968-1989</i>.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.

Another Magazine

Liv Siddall

A spectacular monograph of Peter’s photos called A Photographic Memory has just been printed by Damiani, the cult Italian publishers that produce some of the most sought-after photography, art and pop culture tomes today. The book is a sumptuous collection of over 30 years of photographs Peter collected throughout his career. Opulent snaps of boozy lunches, candlelit al fresco dinners in France, sleepy mornings in various lavish apartments and hotels all over Europe would be beautiful regardless of who features in them, but that’s where these moments in time become really fascinating: they’re punctuated with some of the most intriguing stars and creatives of the century.

Vogue

Rebecca Bengal

Looking at Schlesinger’s photos, you tend to imagine a story lurking below the surface of each image.... A Photographic Memory offers a blissfully carefree record of a lost bohemia. He photographed Manolo Blahnik getting a haircut; the Rolling Stones’s gear during the Exile on Main St sessions at Villa Nellcôte; his many-decades partner, Eric Boman, with their good friend Grace Coddington; David Hockney and Cecil Beaton; Paloma Picasso; Andy Warhol and Rex Reed in the back of a cab; and what seem to be an awful lot of accidentally beautiful moments, the kind of photographs people aspire to carefully orchestrate in their Instagram feeds now.

Hypebeast

Ashleigh Kim

Peter Schlesinger's photography brings you into the world of Andy Warhol and Grace Coddington in the '70s... Scenes like Robert Mapplethorpe on the Boulevard Saint-Germain, Grace Coddington at a café in Paris, or Andy Warhol in the backseat of a taxi were all but an average day in Schlesinger’s world.

Los Angeles Review of Books

Anya Ventura

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.
