Terry O’Neill (1938 - 2019) is one of the most celebrated and widely collected British photographers of all time.
Known for his intimate portraits of celebrities, politicians and royals, he helped to define the mood of London in the Swinging Sixties through his work with stars from The Beatles to Elizabeth Taylor.
In later years he would continue to capture compelling portraits of world figures, including Nelson Mandela and Queen Elizabeth II.
O'Neill's unique style, which was closer to reportage or street photography than formal portraiture, is instantly recognisable by the candid, relaxed moods of his subjects and unusual settings that show their spontaneous, human side.
His works have been exhibited among others at the National Portrait Gallery in London and the San Francisco Art Exchange, and are held widely in private and public collections around the world.
