TERRY O'NEILL

 
 

Terry O’Neill began his photography career in 1958 and gained notoriety documenting the styles, fashion and celebrity of the 1960s. He chronicled the lives and rise of then-emerging rock stars like David Bowie, Elton John, Chuck Berry and The Who. He photographed The Beatles and The Rolling Stones early in their careers when they were still struggling young bands, and had a 30 year working relationship with Frank Sinatra which granted him access to him both backstage and in private. His photograph of his former wife, actress Faye Dunaway, the morning after she won the Academy Award for Network has been nominated as the most iconic Hollywood photograph of all time. Over the years, his work has been used for iconic movie posters, album covers and fashion plates for the world’s top designers.
