Since the 1960s English photographer O’Neill has dedicated himself to capturing lasting images of the greatest icons of our time, between movie stars, politicians, pop/rock stars and athletes. O’Neill created photographs which have been imprinted on our public consciousness, but it is the moments of intimacy that he captured, the moments where his friendship with his subjects enabled them to let their guard down and appear vulnerable and unreserved, which led to the most stunning of his photographs.
