O’Neill was right at the center of everything that was hot in a time when that mattered and the celebrities were STARS.
Terry O’Neill was more than a photographer. He was a visual artist who captured his subjects as their true selves. He photographed me many times in the 1970s, including treasured photos with @eltonofficial. Rest In Peace, my friend. You will be missed. pic.twitter.com/EiH8hnNoG7

Terry O'Neill took the most iconic photographs of me throughout the years, completely capturing my moods. He was brilliant, funny and I absolutely loved his company. A real character who has now passed on.
RIP you wonderful man.

RIP Terry O'Neill, who has passed away at 81. His off-duty photographs of Audrey Hepburn on the sets of Two for the Road and How to Steal a Million are some of the most beautiful and relaxed images of the actress and humanitarian. #TerryONeill #photography #AudreyHepburn #1960s pic.twitter.com/F1ph0XeWC3
