Excerpt of Terry O’Neill 50 year Retrospective Interview at Mouche Gallery on meeting Frank Sinatra for the first time and his Iconic photograph “Sinatra Boardwalk”…
“I got friendly with Ava Gardner on the film and I used to take them to a sports jazz club in London. I told Eva, one day I’d love to get a chance to photograph your ex husband. She goes you know what, I’ll write you a letter. So she writes me this letter, [and] I’m waiting for Frank to come onto the set.. and he comes around the corner with about 4, 6 bodyguards and I suddenly realized what a giant of a man that he was. This was my first view of him and I handed him the letter and he read the letter, he said right you’re with me, then he totally ignored me for the next three weeks. Which I realized now, or shortly afterwards, that he was giving me the biggest gift that anybody could give anybody. Because I could go anywhere with him, he didn’t even acknowledge the fact that I was there, and I realized the secret of great photography is to fade into the background and make yourself, sort of, as invisible as possible. And that was sort of my first major lesson in taking good pictures.”
Authorised by the Estate, this new edition brings a whole new life to this classic work. Artist Clayton Hickman, known for his work on images of The Beatles and Dr. Who, meticulously mimicked the colours by using source materials directly from the O’Neill archive as well as footage from the film.
British photographer, Terry O’Neill, has photographed presidents, prime ministers, rock stars, Oscar winners and the British Royal Family. He chronicled the lives of emerging rock stars and icons of the 60s, including David Bowie, Elton John, The Who, Eric Clapton and Chuck Berry. He photographed The Beatles and The Rolling Stones when they were struggling young bands, and worked closely with Frank Sinatra for over 30 years. His photograph of Faye Dunaway, in Beverly Hills, the morning after she won her Best Actress Oscar for Network, has been nominated as the most iconic Hollywood shot of all time. O’Neill has produced covers for Time, Newsweek, Stern, Paris Match, The Sunday Times Magazine and Vanity Fair, and his work is featured in national galleries and private collections worldwide.
