Book Description

18 Mar 2014
Terry O'Neill is one of the world's most celebrated and collected photographers. No one has captured the front line 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 revolutionise 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: The Complete Works - comprises the most compelling and epic catalogue of the age of celebrity. Terry O'Neill has worked for the most prestigious magazines in the world including Time, Newsweek, Stern, Bunte, Figaro, The Sunday Times, Vanity Fair, People, Parade, Vogue and many others. And his award launched to showcase the work of young emerging photographers is now one of the most highly prized global competitions in art. The Royal Society of Arts has honoured him with the rare Centenary Medal for his lifetime achievement. Only a dozen have ever been awarded in recognition of 'outstanding contributions to the art and science of photography.'

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a must buy! 14 July 2013
By Mr. G. Bridgeman-clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
I really enjoy and appreciate 60's/70's and 80's photography - with film being used. This book really epitomises just how good Terry O'Neill was/is and what a great photographer he is. regrettably he seems to have given up taking images, like the other great photographers of the time including David Bailey, Terrence Donavan, Don McCullen and those British photographers no longer with us, like Lichfield, Duffy and Parkinson.

The book is full of iconic black and white and a few colour images. They are all stunning. There is some background on Terry O'Neill and on some of the images and to be honest, in my view just enough as this is a weighty tome and I read it in an hour on the train home from buying it in London.

Unlike Bailey and McCullen, there really is little about Terry O'Neill on TV or documentary DVDs. This is a sad loss as I reckon his art, and art it is, will probably be lost to us unless someone really starts promoting it now.

The book is in a word, fantastic, and if you are a lover of photography, it is a must buy.
