Terry O’ Neill started his photography career working for the photography division for a London airport and after that, he also worked for The Daily Sketch. During the 1960’s, he became more prominent in the photography business due to his photographs of showbiz and fashion icons including Twiggy, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Elton John and many more.

For the past few years, he has been rummaging through his archives and he found boxes of negatives that he never printed out or shown to the public. In celebration of his work, Proud Chelsea will be featuring some of his works through an exhibit. View some of his photos below.
