British photographer Terry O'Neill, whose work captured iconic images of London's Swinging Sixties, has died.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
O'Neill, 81, had prostate cancer and died at home on Saturday night after a long illness, his agency said.
He photographed celebrities - including The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Elton John and the Queen - and received a CBE last month for services to photography.
BBC Arts Correspondent David Sillito said O'Neil's work helped to define the Swinging Sixties.
Born in London, O'Neill left school with hopes of becoming a jazz drummer, but ended up working in a photographic unit at London's Heathrow Airport.
It was there that he captured then Home Secretary Rab Butler, immaculately dressed and asleep on a bench.
