Celebrity; The Photographs of Terry O'Neill

Author(s): Terry O'Neill and A. A. Gill


Celebrity' is often compared to fame but its linguistic roots also leave room for celebration and honour. In that sense celebrity is closer to star quality than to mere renown, the state of being famous. In this sumptuously illustrated book we find Tom Cruise, Brigitte Bardot, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Joan Collins, Michael Caine, Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery and people who have superseded the fads of reputation and proved their celebrity longevity. The range of Terry O'Neill's celebrity portraits is incredible. From Audrey Hepburn to Naomi Campbell, from Frank Sinatra to Kate Moss - this is a true celebration of true celebrity. AA Gill's characteristically witty and insightful introduction to the book analyses what it is that allows these people to transcend their contemparies in the pantheon of the renowned; what makes some them true celebrities, whilst others are merely and briefly famous.
