Terry O'neill Exhibition - Masa Fine Art Gallery

This year Tristan's Gallery will stage our spring exhibition in one of the finest gallery spaces in the West Country. 'Masa Fine Art Gallery' offers 4500sq feet of gallery space in Plymouth's picturesque Royal William Yard, the perfect arena to showcase one of Britain's leading celebrity portrait photographers.

London-born Terry O'neill began his career with a chance photograph of R.A.Butler, which was bought and appeared on the cover of the Sunday Dispatch. This led to work as a reportage photographer and after three years on Fleet Street, Terry O'neill quickly became a significant image-maker, becoming one of a group of talented young photographers who helped create the photographic icons of the 1960s and the buzz that became Swinging London. By the 1970s he had gained an international reputation and throughout the years he has photographed many great names from the world of celebrity, including Rod Stewart, Bridgitte Bardot, Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, Audrey Hepburn, Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery, Paul Newman, Kate Moss, Elvis Presley and bands such as The Who, The Rolling Stones, U2 and The Beatles. In more recent years, he has taken photographic portraits of the Royal family and Tony Blair's family. He has received commissions from important American based international magazine, 'Life' while in the U.K his work is frequently seen in the glossy pages of the Sunday Times.

This special exhibition of Terry O'neill's work will feature limited edition fine art photographic prints of some of Terry O'Neill's most iconic images of celebrities from stage, screen and the world of pop music. Opening on March 20th, it will run for four weeks.
