Photography Exhibit: Terry O'Neill

Terry O'Neill Comes to the Morrison Hotel Gallery in Soho

On April 23, Terry O’Neill, one of the world’s most accomplished and collected photographers, makes his long anticipated New York City gallery appearance with a presentation and an exhibition of some of his most famous and iconic photographs, as well as many never-before-seen images, at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, 124 Prince Street, New York City.

Mr. O’Neill, whose coveted work hangs in national galleries and private collections worldwide, has produced covers for Time, Newsweek, Stern, Paris Match, The Sunday Times Magazine, Vanity Fair and many others over the course of his six-decade career. Since he first picked up a camera in 1958, he has photographed presidents, prime ministers, rock stars, Oscar winners and the British Royal Family. His work has delivered iconic movie posters, album covers and fashion plates for the world’s top designers.

Mr. O’Neill has chronicled the lives of emerging rock stars and icons of the 60s including David Bowie, Elton John, The Who, Eric Clapton, Chuck Berry and many others. He photographed The Beatles and The Rolling Stones when they were struggling young bands and worked closely with Frank Sinatra for over 30 years, being granted access to the legend back stage and in private.

Former husband to legendary actress Faye Dunaway, his photograph of her in Beverley Hills, the morning after she won her Best Actress Oscar for Network, has been nominated as the most iconic Hollywood shot of all time. His photographs of Brigitte Bardot, Jean Shrimpton and Audrey Hepburn capture the charisma of these superstars at the peak of their careers.

Deitch Projects: Final Days

Deitch Projects in SoHo is busy with its final gallery events before an anticipated June closure as a result of the appointment of its owner, Jeffrey Deitch, to the directorship of L.A.'s MoCA, according to the museum's board chairs David Johnson and Maria Bell. Inevitably, these events are so crowded, they spill out onto the street. While the real fancy parties held after the openings are only for the elite few, these are still great places to people-watch.

Subway: A, C, E to Canal St; R, W to Canal St ; J, M, Z to Canal St; 6 to Canal St
