Terry O'Neill: Hollywood Icons Exhibition

A new exhibition showcasing British photographer Terry O'Neill's most famous Hollywood images has opened in London.

Mainly dating back to the 1960s and 70s the photos show stars of the screen and stage both in character and off duty.

Faye Dunaway is seen relaxing by a pool at the Beverly Hills Hotel after winning an Oscar in 1977, while Liz Taylor is shown applying make-up for A Little Night Music in 1977.

O'Neill was married to Dunaway from 1983 to 1986.

O'Neill is unique among photographers for the amount of icons he has photographed, ranging from Winston Churchill and Frank Sinatra to Amy Winehouse.

Tamara Beckwith, co-founder of the gallery, said: "It goes without saying that Terry is one of the greatest photographers we have ever produced on these shores. It is only fitting that we should celebrate his achievement with an exhibition of his most iconic images."

The 75-year-old was awarded The Royal Photographic Society's Centenary medal in "recognition of a sustained, significant contribution to the art of photography" in 2011.

The Best of Terry O'Neill is at The Little Black Gallery London until March 1.
