''Looking at Terry's photographs is like gazing through a window at the most extraordinary and exciting moments of my life. I'm so glad he was with us throughout the madness: in his evocative and stylish photos he captured those moments as no other photographer could."
That's what Elton has said about Terry O'Neill's work. The two have collaborated for many years, taking in excess of 5,000 photographs. A number of these, from intimate backstage shots to huge stadium concerts, will be available this fall. Many of the images haven't been seen by the public previously.
With Elton John By Terry O'Neill: The Definitive Portrait With Unseen Image, the photographer has drawn on his personal relationship with the pop maestro to write the book's introduction and captions.
The book can be pre-ordered at Amazon's Web site.
