As a still photographer, one of Schatzberg's most famous images was the cover photo of the Bob Dylan album Blonde on Blonde, released in 1966. A collection of Schatzberg's images of Dylan was published by Genesis Publications in 2006, titled Thin Wild Mercury. Schatzberg still resides in New York City, where he is working on several film projects, including a sequel to "Scarecrow," co-written with Bruce Springsteen's former publicist, Seth Cohen [1].

Schatzberg was divorced in Cd. Juárez, Mexico in 1968 following eleven years of separation from wife Corinne, who had refused to end the marriage after having lived together for only five years. The couple had two children. At the time of the divorce, Schatzberg was widely known as Faye Dunaway's fiancé, but Dunaway left Schatzberg for actor Marcello Mastroianni in 1968. Schatzberg's marriage to French American actress Maureen Kerwin in 1983 ended in divorce in 1998.
