The Filmoteca de Catalunya hosts the photographic exhibition "Terry O'Neill. The face of the legends."
This British photographer portrays the myths of cinema, music, fashion and politics in the second half of the 20th century, production of which in the exhibition 'Terry O`Neill. La cara de la leyenda ', which is open at the Filmoteca de Catalunya, curated by Cristina Carrillo de Barnús, presents more than 60 photographs.
Its style comes from the conjunction of two factors: the use of the camera of 35 mm, much lighter and more comfortable than the usual ones of the time, and exceptional access to those photographed, with which it passed whole days as if It was one of them. In 1963 he made the first photograph of The Beatles for the daily Daily Sketch, in a backyard of Abbey Road, where the band recorded its first record; In addition to being the first photograph of the group that was published in the press, it was also the first time that a British newspaper took care of The Beatles. And this photography followed other musical groups of the time, such as The Rolling Stones, David Bowie or Elton John, or supermodels such as Jean Shrimpton or Twiggy.
Then, in Hollywood, he captured with his camera images of great figures of the cinema like Paul Newman, Groucho Marx or Frank Sinatra ... to Ava Gardner, Raquel Welch or Audrey Hepburn. And in front of his goal, politicians like the likes of Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela or Margaret Thatcher marched. And he made the official photo of the world football championship in Brazil in 2014, where Pelé appears with the World Cup.
The exhibition 'Terry O'Neill. El rostro de las leyendas' is presented at the Filmoteca de Catalunya, until May 13, 2018.
