#FineArtFriday – Kate Moss, Terry O’Neill

Kate Moss

By the time the mid-1990s rolled around, Terry O’Neill was choosing assignments and accepting less and less work. “It wasn’t because I could afford to do less work, it was more for personal reasons. And I also didn’t want to travel so much or go through all these new rules for a photographer.” New rules? “All the planning that would go into a shoot before the day, the decision by committee, all the people surrounding the subject. It was just exhausting and took the fun out of it. When I was young, I’d hate to hear the phrase ‘back in my day’—but when I was old enough to say it myself, well, ‘back in my day’ it was just more relaxed.”

Kate Moss changed his mind. “What a stunning woman. She can’t take a bad photo. She really can’t. And that’s why she’s been at the top of her game for so many years. There’s just something about her that translates to film. When I was offered the assignment, I had to take her photograph.”

Limited edition, signed, fine art prints are available of this photograph in sizes from 12×16 to 48×72. For more information, contact jackie@iconicimages.net or visit our Fine Art Prints Page.
