DESCRIPTION

Celebrating half a century of his iconic photographs.

It was 50 years ago that Terry O'Neill first picked up a camera, and began an astonishing career. First becoming a key photographer in London's heady 1960s cultural milieu, he went on to capture most major stars of stage and screen, and has helped to define our very notion of celebrity'. His famous photographs of Brigitte Bardot smoking a cigar, Frank Sinatra with his bodyguards sauntering down the Miami boardwalk and Faye Dunaway the morning after her Oscar win have become iconic images that have made Terry one of the world's most popular and collectible photographers.

Terry's work forms a visual Who's Who of cinema, rock and pop music, theatre and fashion over five decades. His sitters include Bardot, Sinatra, Dunaway, Michael Caine, Audrey Hepburn, Paul Newman, Lee Marvin, Elizabeth Taylor, Catherine Deneuve, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, and his photographs offer an intimate insight into their lives, both private and public.

The exhibition will show large modern prints that O'Neill has created from his original negatives. Many have never been seen before in The Netherlands.
