Terry O’Neill Photography Exhibition Opens in Kildare Village

Last night, in Kildare Village, a temporary photography exhibition opened, featuring the work of photographer Terry O’Neill, spanning his whole career. A career that took off in the ’60’s when he photographed the most celebrated figures in the entertainment industry including; the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Brigitte Bardot (left) Orson Wells and Audrey Hepburn, (among many others). He not only captured these icons in a thought-provoking and poignant way, but also in a way that focused on their natural, individual style. Turning him from a mere rock photographer into a legendary celebrity artist in his own time.

The exhibition called Intimate, is free and running until January 2010 prints of all the images featured in the exhibition are also available to buy from the gallery space. If you do decide to go along, be prepared to be in awe. Terry O’Neill’s candid images capture the true beauty of every actress, musician and model he photographs. Included in the exhibition are a series of colour and B&W photographs he took in 1977. The images (see below) of actress Faye Dunaway lounging beside a pool in the Beverly Hill Hotel, are probably his most well-known. They were taken the morning after she won the Oscar for Best Actress for the film Network. He has also shot covers for Vogue and his iconic images have graced the covers of many magazines around the world.

    Great post Whisty! I think I chatted with him on Monday while waiting for a flight from Heathrow to Dublin. I need to do investigation if he really was travelling that day, but I’m pretty sure it was him!

    Yes, I am serious:) But girls…While I did think he looked familiar, I didn’t recognise him until I saw his picture in Metro! I am quite embarrassed. I helped him find the gate and he very much sympathised with me as I was in a really messy situation with the airline (in fact, he made the flight, I didn’t!). He was a gentleman.

      Oh no Lucy, poor you! But yay! It’s always so amazing to hear that someone you admire and respect is an all round good egg! I hope everything was alright in the end Lucy! x
