“Well, I love the photographs. I don’t love the cameras and everything but I love all the pictures and the life that I’ve captured.”
Terry O’Neill was born to Irish parents in East London in 1938. He began his career working in a photographic unit for an airline at London’s Heathrow Airport. During this time, he photographed a sleeping figure in a waiting area who happened to be the Home Secretary at the time. O’Neill then found further employment at The Daily Sketch in 1959. His first professional job was photographing Laurence Olivier.
