Jerry Schatzberg talks about Roman and Sharon
I did my usual searching tonight and found an interesting short interview where photographer and filmmaker, Jerry Schatzberg talked about Roman and Sharon:
"There was a sad side to the sixties," Schatzberg says. "We lost some great people like Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones and Sharon Tate.
"Sharon was such a sweet girl. Roman was in London when Sharon was murdered. Honestly, I don't know how he kept from losing his mind after her murder."
"I took a photos of Roman in 1963 outside my studio and I took photos of Sharon in 1967 in the bathroom."
"Roman and I--were and still are--close friends."
I found this on a Norwegian website and had it translated. I include the photos he discussed here. Along with one of him then and now.
