Terry O'Neill: The Opus

The ultimate coffee table book featuring the work of a world-class photographer with iconic, candid and unguarded moments of celebrities and infamous people.


Terry O'Neill is one of the world's most celebrated and collected photographers. No one has captured the front lines 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 and privately. He pioneered backstage reportage photography with such artists as Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, Sir Elton John and Chuck Berry, and his work is a vital chronicle of rock and roll history.

Now, for the first time, an exhaustive cataloging of his archive, conducted over the past three years, has revisited more than 2 million negatives and uncovered unseen images that escaped notice during a 53-year career. Similarly, his use of 35mm cameras on film sets and the early pop music shows of the 1960s opened up a new visual art form that utilized photojournalism and revolutionized formal portrait photography. His work captured the iconic, candid and unguarded moments of celebrities and infamous people - from Ava Gardner to Amy Winehouse, from Churchill to Nelson Mandela, from the earliest photographs of young up-and-coming bands such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace. O' Neill photographed Frank Sinatra for more than 30 years and amassed a unique archive of more than 3,000 Sinatra negatives.

Add the magazine covers, album covers, movie poster and fashion shoots of 1,000 stars and Terry O'Neill - includes the most compelling and epic catalog of the celebrity era. Terry O'Neill has worked for the world's most prestigious magazines, including Time, Newsweek, Stern, Bunte, Figaro, The Sunday Times, Vanity Fair, People, Parade, Vogue and many others. And his award, created to highlight the work of young emerging photographers, is now one of the most esteemed global competitions in the arts.

The Royal Society of Arts honored him with the rare Centenary Medal for his life's work. Only a dozen medals have ever been awarded in recognition of "extraordinary contributions to the art and science of the photography‘.
