“It all started at the airport when Terry O’Neill, who had zero interest in photography whatsoever, took an accidental shot of the then home secretary R.A.B. Butler, nodding off next to a group of African chieftains. O’Neill had unknowingly stumbled onto a style of photography where he would catch people at unexpected moments and photograph them on his 35mm camera that was then considered amateurish. Part of the Swinging London 60s’ camera crew (Bailey, Donovan, Duffy), O’Neill went on to photograph everyone from Muhammad Ali to Frank Sinatra to the British Royal Family.” – Dazed Digital
