Including new and unseen prints from the 1960s. It was 50 years ago that Terry O'Neill first picked up a camera, andbegan 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.
