Vintage: Portraits of Celebrities by Terry O’Neill

Vintage: Portraits of Celebrities by Terry O’Neill


Terry O’Neill is one of the world’s most collected photographers with work hanging in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. From presidents to pop stars he has photographed the frontline of fame for over six decades.

O’Neill began his career at the beginning of the 1960s, with his first professional job photographing Laurence Olivier. O’Neill realised that youth culture was a breaking news story on a global scale and began chronicling the emerging faces of film, fashion and music who would go on to define the Swinging Sixties. By 1965 he was being commissioned by the biggest magazines and newspapers in the world.

His work is admired for its candid, unconventional setting, with O’Neill often granted access to behind scenes on film sets or in personal, private environments. His iconic photographs therefore give audiences a rare chance to see a natural, more human side behind the celebrities.
