Maddox Gallery in Gstaad, Switzerland, is proud to announce the first retrospective of works by renowned British photographer, Terry O’Neill since he passed away in November 2019, bringing together a collection of rare and iconic works from throughout O’Neill’s long and illustrious career.
‘Terry O’Neill: Every Picture Tells A Story, A Retrospective’ will run from 30th July, what would have been O’Neill’s 82nd birthday, to the 29th August 2020, showcasing a series of captivating works including images of Elton John, Brigitte Bardot, and David Bowie in the distinctive snapshot aesthetic that O’Neill is famous for. Amongst these pieces will be some of O’Neill’s rarer work, some of which was only released last year, including a recently colourised image of Frank Sinatra on the Miami Boardwalk.
Jay Rutland, Maddox Gallery Creative Director comments, “We’re honoured to be showcasing such a prolific body of work from one of the world’s best photographers.
His candid images have given us a rare, up close and personal view of the some of the world’s most iconic figures.”
Spanning over 60 years, no other photographer has embraced the span of fame, capturing the icons of our age. From the faces of film to fashion, movie stars to musicians and presidents to pop stars, Terry has become one of the world’s most collected photographers. His work now hangs in national art galleries and private collections around the world.
“It’s particularly significant to be bringing this exhibition to Gstaad as Terry and many of the celebrities he photographed frequented the alpine ski resort – we felt it was the perfect gallery to bring his first retrospective to” Rutland comments.
In the first retrospective show since his death, the exhibition includes a portfolio of witty and strikingly original photographs from the famous photographer.
