Terry O’Neill

– the master of portraits



› 190. Terry O’Neill, ”Brigitte Bardot, Spain, 1971”. Estimate 350 000 – 400 000 SEK


› 204. Terry O’Neill, ”Brigitte Bardot, Deauville, 1968”. Estimate 35 000 – 40 000 SEK.


O’Neill’s camera has captured everyone from rock stars and politicians to royalty. With his personal and sensitive touch, O’Neill’s portraits are often different to how his subjects are normally portrayed. His attitude in regards to his published commissions was always: “I want my pictures to tell a story – not sell a story”.


O’Neill photographed the Rolling Stones and the Beatles as early as 1963 when they were young musicians just on the verge of a breakthrough. Later he followed both Elton John and David Bowie backstage. During the late 1970s, he began more and more to take pictures in Hollywood. He both worked and socialised in private with actors and musicians, as well as celebrities. He was, for example, a close friend of Frank Sinatra and would follow him throughout his career, both publicly and privately.


› 206. Terry O’Neill, ”Naomi Campell, London, 1993”. Estimate 25 000 – 30 000 SEK.


› 208. Terry O’Neill, ”Faye Dunaway, Hollywood, 1977”. Estimate 150 000 – 200 000 SEK.



In 2011 Terry O’Neill was awarded The Royal Photographic Society’s Centenary Medal and, in 2019, he was appointed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) for his contribution to photography.
