“An intellectual is a man who says a simple thing in a difficult way; an artist is a man who says a difficult thing in a simple way.”

Notes From a Dirty Old Man, Charles Bukowski

“Women: I liked the colors of their clothing; the way they walked; the cruelty in some faces; now and then the almost pure beauty in another face, totally and enchantingly female. They had it over us: they planned much better and were better organized. While men were watching professional football or drinking beer or bowling, they, the women, were thinking about us, concentrating, studying, deciding–whether to accept us, discard us, exchange us, kill us or whether simply to leave us. In the end it hardly mattered; no matter what they did, we ended up lonely and insane.”

Faye Dunaway

by Terry O’Neill
digital R-type colour print from original transparency, 1977
19 1/2 in. x 19 1/2 in. (495 mm x 495 mm)

O’Neill said of this portrait: ‘I call this picture ‘The Morning After’. I wanted to get a different kind of ‘Oscar’ picture – one to illustrate what the award meant to actors and actresses. Faye had won Best Actress for Network (1976) the previous night and I made her meet me at the Beverly Hills Hotel at 6.30am for this shoot. She hadn’t slept and the implications of a watershed event in her career were only just beginning to dawn on her.’The newspapers also headline Peter Finch’s posthumous Oscar for his performance in Network. Finch died of a heart attack on 14th January 1977.
