'Newly discovered' photographs from the archives of Terry O'Neill on view at Eduard Planting Gallery
Terry O'Neill, Audrey Hepburn - Bathe.

AMSTERDAM.- 'Newly Discovered' – Photographs from the Archives of Terry O’Neill – shows fascinating portraits of icons from the international world of film, music and fashion. The exhibition is from 7 September until 19 October in Eduard Planting Gallery in Amsterdam.

The gallery presents images of supermodels like Naomi Campbell, Iman and Kate Moss. And portraits of actresses like Ursula Andress, Andie MacDowell, Audrey Hepburn, Isabella Rossellini, Michelle Pfeiffer and Sharon Stone. But also David Bowie, Johan Cruijff, James Garner, Queen and Diana Ross shine on the wall.

The reason for the exhibition is a new, recently published book by the legendary photographer. He made a selection from his extensive archive of more than two million negatives. The book, entitled 'Terry O’Neill', includes more than 300 photos in colour and black and white. There is also a special edition available in XL format with an exclusive print of Brigitte Bardot.

Terry O’Neill (London, 1938) is one of the world’s most celebrated and collected photographers. He pioneered a more intimate, reportage style of celebrity photography. No one has captured the frontline 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.

Beside album covers and movie posters, pictures of Terry O’Neill have been published in prestigious magazines such as GQ, Newsweek, TIME, Vanity Fair and Vogue. His work is exhibited in galleries in more than 30 cities around the world. The National Portrait Gallery in London has 75 portraits in her collection.

Terry O’Neill (born in 1938 in London) is one of the world’s most collected photographers whose work hangs in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. After an early career as a jazz drummer, he picked up a camera in 1960. For over six decades, he has photographed the frontline of fame, from the most legendary stars of stage and screen to rock stars, supermodels, presidents and the British Royal Family.

Terry O’Neill pioneered a more intimate, reportage style of celebrity photography, informal and spontaneous. He was the first photographer to observe the tectonic social and cultural shifts occurring across Britain as the nation emerged from post-war fatigue and in particular, he chronicled how youth hijacked fashion, the arts and music to herald an era that became universally acclaimed as the Swinging ‘60s.

No other living photographer has embraced the span of fame so broadly and for so long, capturing the icons of our age from Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela, from Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Amy Winehouse, from Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot to Nicole Kidman, as well as every James Bond from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig.

He photographed The Beatles and The Rolling Stones when they were still struggling young bands in 1963, pioneered backstage reportage photography with David Bowie, Elton John, The Who, Eric Clapton and Chuck Berry and his images have adorned historic rock albums, movie posters and covers of prestigious magazines.

Former husband to legendary actress Faye Dunaway, his photograph of her in Beverly Hills, the morning after she won her Best Actress Oscar for ‘Network’, has been nominated as the most iconic Hollywood shot of all time. His images of Brigitte Bardot, Raquel Welch and Audrey Hepburn capture the charisma of these superstars at the peak of their careers.

Terry O’Neill opened up a new visual art form using photojournalism to revolutionize formal portraiture. His works have captured both intimate private moments and extravagant public appearances, becoming iconic and highly collectible. His photographs play an important role in forming our very notion of celebrity. Friendships with actors like Richard Burton and Michael Caine meant that he could bring people together for photographic shoots.

The photographer also made fashion plates for the world’s top designers. He photographed Jean Shrimpton, one of the first supermodels and discovered Jodie Kidd. Top models like Christy Turlington, Elle Macpherson, Iman, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss were in front of his camera to create striking portraits.

Terry O’Neill was invited to be the official photographer for Nelson Mandela’s visit to London in celebration of his 90th Birthday in 2008. His images also lit up the London Olympics closing ceremony in 2012. The Royal Society of Arts has honored 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’.
