He has photographed some of the most famous people in the world in a career spanning six decades. Few other photographers in history have managed to capture such a range of icons from Winston Churchill and Nelson Mandela, to Mohammed Ali, Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn and Amy Winehouse. His photograph of Raquel Welch in a crucifixion scene back in 1970 was banned for thirty years and he famously managed to soften the image of Margaret Thatcher when he photographed her with a simple yellow rose in her hand. His photographs have adorned historic rock albums, movie posters and international magazine covers.
