Terry O'Neill
Terry O'Neill - Jean Shrimpton & Terence Stamp, Photography 1963, Printed After

1963

About the Item

Terry O’Neill captured the essence of London’s Swinging Sixties with this dual portrait of model Jean Shrimpton and actor Terence Stamp. Shrimpton defined the look of the ‘posh’ girls of the day and Stamp was fresh from his award-winning performance in the British classic Billy Budd. Taken in London in 1963, the couple was regarded as the ‘faces of the 60s’ by Vogue magazine. Terry O'Neill came to prominence in the 1960s with the new generation of photographers including David Bailey and Brian Duffy who rejected the static formality of the posed photographs of the 1950s and went instead for spontaneity and unusual settings. Jean Rosemary Shrimpton is an English model and actress. She was an icon of Swinging London and is considered to be one of the world's first supermodels. She appeared on numerous magazine covers including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Vanity Fair. In 1960, Jean Shrimpton brought the fashion world to a halt. Unlike the more voluptuous models of the 1950’s like Suzy Parker or Audrey Hepburn, that came packaged with stiff aristocratic poses, this leggy British brunette broke the modelling mould entirely with her super slender frame. Shrimpton paved the way for fellow free-spirited waifs such as Twiggy and Penelope Tree and eventually Kate Moss. Named by Empire Magazine in 1995 as one of the 100 Sexiest Film Stars of All Time, British actor Terence Henry Stamp typically found himself cast as urbane, sophisticated bad guys throughout his career. Breaking into show business in the early 1960s, Stamp landed his first leading role at the age of 23 in "Billy Budd" (1962), the acclaimed adaptation of Herman Melville's dense novella. An icon of British cinema's wave of "angry young men," Stamp's portrayals - like those of his contemporaries Oliver Reed, Michael Caine and Albert Finney - inhabited shades of gray, walking the line between traditional protagonists and flawed anti-heroes. After his breathtaking early success, however, Stamp's career entered into a significant slump in the late 60s. But later Stamp emerged after a nearly decade-long sabbatical to play the megalomaniacal super-villain General Zod in "Superman: The Movie" (1978) and its sequel, "Superman II" (1980). Ever since, Stamp managed to turn himself into a respected character actor, consistently remaining busy at an age when most actors contemplate retirement. Limited Edition Silver Gelatin Print.
