British photographer Terry O'Neill stopped by The Social to talk about the iconic images of equally iconic people he's taken over a career that spans over six decades. From musicians, like the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and Frank Sinatra, to actors like Audrey Hepburn, Sean Connery and Faye Dunaway (who he later married), O'Neill won the trust of the famous—including presidents and prime ministers.
"I have seen an awful lot of famous people at their best and worst—but I'm not interested in making money trading their secrets or mine," O'Neill, who will be present at Toronto's Izzy Gallery on June 26 for his premiere Canadian exhibit, The Man Who Shot the Sixities, said. "I want my pictures to tell a story, not sell a story."
