British top photographer Terry O'Neill died on Saturday night, his agency Iconic Images announced on Sunday. O'Neill suffered from prostate cancer.
"He was one of the most iconic photographers of the last sixty years. His legendary photos will not only be engraved in our memory, but also in our minds and hearts," said a spokesperson for the agency.
O'Neill was known as a celebrity photographer. He made a name for himself in the sixties, when as a photographer he made portraits of the new faces of the film, fashion and music world. He photographed the band members of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones when they were still at the start of their careers.
In addition to pop stars, O'Neill also portrayed greats such as Nelson Mandela and Winston Churchill. His photos were printed in newspapers and magazines all over the world.
Last month he received a medal for his achievements in photography, which the British crown prince William presented to him.
