Eyemazing, NL, Nr. 1, 2011

Fashion photographer Stan Shaffer is celebrated for his fashion shots of the 60s, 70s and 80s. This lush coffee-table publication-his “scrapbook”-brims over with cookie-cutter beauties (the usual fare: dangerously young, pouting girls with mile-high legs and luxuriant eyelashes, the rich, the famous) Celebrities would practically have done anything to get in front of Shaffer’s lens; his touch was sheer glamour. Shaffer was at all the A-list parties for some three decades, shooting personal pictures of friends and luminaries of the day. Among the stars he captured are Brooke Shields (ages 12), Uma Thurman, Jerry Hall, Andy Warhol, Halston and a host of others. As the late Alexander Libermann said: “Stan Shaffer is a real artist, he’s an attractive fellow who understands the sexuality of women and his exciting photographs show it.”
