The exhibition “Terry O’Neill. Faces of the Stars” at Colombo Center, presented 50 of the most famous works by legendary British photographer Terry O’Neill, who from the early ‘60s has been dedicating his career capturing with his camera the most famous personalities of their time, converting them into icons.
State of the Art invited Curator Cristina Carrillo de Albornoz Fisac to include a selection of O’Neill’s most renowned shots of actors, singers and models such as Sean Connery, the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Elton John and Faye Dunaway, his future wife, the morning after winning her Oscar for Network. Spontaneous private moments often captured because of his personal relationship with the stars, make these images iconic and intimate at the same time.
The exhibition organized for Sonae Sierra counted with the institutional support of Fundação D. Luis I., the British Embassy, the British Council and was part of the official program of the Portuguese Year of Cinema and Audiovisual. The exhibition received more than 184.500 visitors in three month.
