Terry O’Neill is a British photographer famed for shooting mod styles in the 1960s for fashion magazines – as well as celebrities. Terry O’Neill famed for shooting Mick Jagger, David Bowie, the Queen of England, Elton John and Winston Churchill, the famed 79-year-old photographer is now working on a new book that features unseen photos from his archive. It will especially show how celeb photography changed over the years.
“It’s just not the same anymore,” he tells High Snobiety. “I mean, musicians and actors needed photographers back when I started, we were the ones getting their images into the papers. Today, it’s overly managed. To work with someone today, you have to go through several people; managers, PR, stylists – all who want approval and control.

When I started, it was often just me and the subject. Then, on top of that, you have all the photoshopping going on. They don’t even resemble themselves in the photo. Is that photography; when you do so much work with the actual image? I’m not sure.”
