PostIn Memoriam ~ Stan Shaffer 1944-2010

I regret to announce that famed photographer Stan Shaffer has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues.

Stan was a world-famous photographer who shot for Vogue, Interview, Bloomingdale’s and Victoria’s Secret. His celebrity subjects have included David Kennedy, Halston, Mariel Hemmingway, Carla Bruni, Janice Dickinson, Patti Hansen, Jerry Hall, Uma Thurman, Rachel Ward, Louise Robey, Pete Townsend, John Phillips and Genevieve Waite. As a film maker, Stan’s short films have won awards internationally.

In 2009, Stan generously contributed 70 of his fashion photographs to the Gallery at miniMadMOD60s. A special album was created to showcase them. Here are a few that can be found in the Some Top 60s Photographers Album: Stan Shaffer Album:

At the time of his passing, Stan was looking forward to the release of his book You Should Have Been With Me by the teNeues Publishing Group on September 15, 2010. describes the book in this way:

In this photographic scrapbook, fashion photographer Stan Shaffer shares his extraordinary life at the nexus of art, fashion and cinema. On this incredible journey we traipse through the hottest NYC parties where everyone is somebody and they're all dressed to kill! Over his career as icon maker, Shaffer has hung out with everyone from Andy Warhol to Jerry Hall, Carla Bruni to Uma Thurman. With his fine-tuned intuition, this trendsetting photographer reveals the real person beyond these public facades. Sometimes sexy, often quirky, these images are always joyful and original.
