The Beatles Now and Then.Murray’s docu-series includes My life as a Rolling Stone Murray said, “I was fortunate enough to interview Terry in 2017 to discuss his long relationship with the Rolling Stones.” Terry brought portraiture into the real-world. He created a fantasy within the frame but the contradiction of his work is that this fantasy often revealed a deeper truth about the person he was photographing.

“He could boil down someone’s essence and magnetism to a single brilliant image, displaying icons of our age as vulnerable and emotional. Even the most inaccessible celebrities wanted to pose for his camera; mention a celebrity from the second half 20th century, and that person likely posed for Terry’s camera.”
