British photographer Terry O’Neill, whose images captured London’s Swinging ‘60s and who created iconic portraits of Elton John, Brigitte Bardot and Winston Churchill, died last month at age 81.
“Terry was a class act, quick witted and filled with charm,” his agency said in a statement posted to its website. “Anyone who was lucky enough to know or work with him can attest to his generosity and modesty. As one of the most iconic photographers of the last 60 years, his legendary pictures will forever remain imprinted in our memories as well as in our hearts and minds.”
We couldn't agree more, gallery co-founder Peter Blachley reflects, "Terry was a friend to Morrison Hotel Gallery for almost two decades and worked with us to create some beautiful collections for our clients."
One notable installation that we worked with him to create is on view at the stunning Club Room in the Soho Grand Hotel. We recommend you stop by during the holidays for a drink, get awe-struck by his very large prints on brushed aluminum and lift a glass to the great Terry O'Neill!
