If you’re passing by The Shops at Columbus Circle — that high-falutin shopping gallery in New York’s Time Warner Center at the southwest corner of Central Park — check out the photo exhibit on the third floor, right in front of the Samsung Experience emporium. A show called Just Frank features pictures of Frank Sinatra that are striking for their size (many prints are up to 72×48 inches) as well as the sheer magnetism of their subject. The black-and-white photographs are by Terry O’Neill, who famously shot the cultural cognoscenti in the 1960s and was known for a candid style that drew upon easy friendships with his subjects. (O’Neill’s own tempestuous relationship with Faye Dunaway was tabloid fodder for years before she bitterly done away with him, but that’s another story.)
