Terry O'Neill is one of the most important photographers of his generation, taking iconic portraits of artists from The Beatles to The Rolling Stones, Elizabeth Taylor to Audrey Hepburn. He has worked with such icons as Michael Caine, Brigitte Bardot, Sean Connery, Terence Stamp, Ava Gardner, Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Raquel Welch, Roger Moore, Amy Winehouse, Nelson Mandela and hundreds of others. Frank Sinatra, whom O'Neill worked with for several decades, considered him a friend and O'Neill had a close working relationship with David Bowie, including photographing the iconic "Jumping Dog" image used for the promotion of Diamond Dogs. O'Neill's photograph of Faye Dunaway sitting by the pool the morning after winning the Academy Award in 1977 is widely considered to be the most iconic image of Hollywood. His work is included in permanent collections in museums, galleries and private collections worldwide.
