Overview

* The ultimate record of the work of a world-class photographer
* Capturing the iconic, candid, and unguarded moments of the famous and the notorious

Terry O'Neill is one of the world's most celebrated and collected photographers. No one has captured the frontline of fame so broadly - and for so long. For more than 50 years, he has photographed rock stars and presidents, royals and movie stars, at work, at play, in private. He pioneered backstage reportage photography with the likes of Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, Sir Elton John and Chuck Berry and his work comprises a vital chronicle of rock and roll history.

Now, for the first time, an exhaustive cataloguing of his archive conducted over the last three years has revisited more than 2 million negatives and has unearthed unseen images that escaped the eye over a career spanning 53 years.

Similarly, his use of 35mm cameras on film sets and the early pop music shows of the 60s opened up a new visual art form using photojournalism, to revolutionize formal portraiture. His work captured the iconic, candid, and unguarded moments of the famous and the notorious - from Ava Gardner to Amy Winehouse, from Churchill to Nelson Mandela, from the earliest photographs of young emerging bands such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace. O' Neill spent more than 30 years photographing Frank Sinatra, amassing a unique archive of more than 3,000 Sinatra negatives. Add to that the magazine covers, album sleeves, film poster and fashion shoots of 1,000 stars, and Terry O'Neill - comprises the most compelling and epic catalogue of the age of celebrity.

Editorial Reviews

Keith Richards
Terry was everywhere in the 60s - he knew everything and everyone that was happening.
Michael Caine
Terry O'Neill rates rightly as one of the best photographers in the world. He captures something special.
Terry O'Neill
I've been repeatedly asked to write my autobiography - I have seen an awful lot of famous people at their best and worst—but I'm not interested in making money trading their secrets or mine.
I want my pictures to tell a story not sell a story.
Quest
Culled from over two million negatives from throughout his career, Terry O’Neill (ACC Editions) is a comprehensive and compelling display, not just of the subjects whom O’Neill has called his own, but of a particular zeitgeist—the age of celebrity that we collectively inhabit.
Vanity Fair
This month, a compelling and epic compendium of O'Neill's work will be published by Antique Collectors' Club. The eponymous coffee-table book, with an introduction by Dylan Jones, is truly a collector's item.
VOGUE
When it comes to photographic legends there can be few more prolific or revered than Terry O'Neill, the man who shot the greats.
