BOND Photographed by Terry O’Neill – The Definitive Collection
Iconic Images Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition celebrating the collaboration of two great icons: Terry O’Neill and James Bond. Timed to coincide with the launch of Bond: Photographed by Terry O’Neill, The Definitive Collection, edited by James Clarke and published by ACC Art Books, this exhibition is sure to enthral fans of the great film and literary icon.
Looking back on his adventures in the Bond world, O’Neill recalled: ‘I photographed the first Bond film, but I’ve lost all the pictures. When we started, we all thought it was going to be a one or two film thing. We never dared to think it was going to turn into this huge franchise. What’s great about it, and I think it’s the real secret to why it’s been so successful for so many years, is that with each decade, each James Bond, they have really kept up with the times. Sean Connery in the 1960s was cool and classic; he really fits that decade. Roger Moore in the 1970s added more humour; very Cary Grant. In the 1990s, Pierce Brosnan came aboard and added a real style. Then Daniel Craig ―he’s the perfect modern Bond.”
From Goldfinger to Diamonds are Forever, Live and Let Die to On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, no other photographer has captured as many Bond moments as the late Terry O’Neill. On exhibition at Iconic Images Gallery will be classic work with the famed film franchise, including portraits and on-set photography and rare, one-of-a-kind original press prints, signed by Terry O’Neill. Also on exhibit are two very special unique images: Roger Moore as Bond, signed on the front by Roger Moore and Terry O’Neill and Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore, signed on the front by Honor Blackman and Terry O’Neill.
All of the fine-art exhibited is available for purchase. View our e-brochure here.
Bond: Photographed by Terry O’Neill opens to the public on Thursday 26 March, 2020 and runs until 30 April, 2020.
