  • C-Type Print

    A digital c-type is a photographic print, on light-sensitive paper, that has been exposed using digital technology, rather than traditional analogue (otherwise known as ‘darkroom’) techniques.

    Digital c-types are created by exposing the paper using lasers or LEDs rather than a bulb, like in a darkroom. The second part of the traditional process is much the same however: the paper is processed in a photographic developer, followed by bleach fix before being washed to remove the processing chemicals.

About the Artist Terry O'Neill

Terry O’Neill CBE is one of the world’s most collected photographers, with work hanging in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. From presidents to pop stars, he photographed on the frontlines of fame for over six decades. O’Neill began his career at the birth of the 1960s. While other photographers concentrated on earthquakes, wars and politics, O’Neill realised that youth culture was a breaking news story on a global scale; he began chronicling the emerging faces of the film, fashion and music scenes that would go on to define the Swinging Sixties. By 1965 he was being regularly commissioned by the biggest magazines and newspapers in the world.

Remembering His Legacy Terry O'Neill

No other photographer has embraced in such detail the spectrum of fame, capturing the icons of our age, from Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela, singers from Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Amy Winehouse, big-screen stars from Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot to Nicole Kidman, modern supermodels from Naomi Campbell to Kate Moss, and almost every incarnation of James Bond from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig. He photographed The Beatles and The Rolling Stones when they were still struggling young bands in 1963, and pioneered backstage reportage photography with David Bowie, Elton John, Eric Clapton, and Chuck Berry. His images have adorned historic rock albums, movie posters and international magazine covers. Terry O'Neill passed away in November 2019, but his legacy lives on.
