Rockstars, world leaders and Hollywood movie stars are all coming to Loulé! It’s true!…(sort of). Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn, Clint Eastwood and the Beatles will all be there….through the beautiful and iconic imagery of English photographer Terry O’Neill. This amazing exhibition of works are on display at ArtCatto Gallery at Avenida José da Costa Mealha nº 43, starting 27 November.

The public is invited to an opening cocktail reception on 27 November, from 19:00 to 21:00.



Terry O’Neill is one of the world’s most collected photographers whose work hangs in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. At the ripe young age of 22, O’Neill’s pop culture images were appearing in Vogue, Paris Match and Rolling Stone magazines. Along with other important photographers of his time, including David Bailey, Terence Donovan and Patrick Lichfield, O’Neill’s imagery defined “Swinging London” of the 1960s.

For over six decades, O’Neill has photographed the crème-de-la-crème of fame. He has captured unforgettable moments of important figures from Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela, Frank Sinatra to Amy Winehouse, and Brigitte Bardot to Nicole Kidman. He photographed the Beatles and the Rolling Stones at the start of their careers. And, O’Neill pioneered the concept of backstage photo reporting, documenting the antics and drama of rock and roll legends David Bowie, Elton John, The Who, Chuck Berry and Eric Clapton.
