Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs
Produced in close collaboration with her family, Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs gathers some of the finest pictures from McCartney’s astonishing archive of over 200,000 images. From the epicenter of 1960s rock to rural bliss with her husband and kids, McCartney’s lens captured fame, family, music, animals, and the English countryside with tender precision and love.
From her early rock ’n’ roll portraits, through the final years of the Beatles, to touring with Wings and raising four children with Paul, Linda captured her whole world on film. Her shots range from spontaneous family pictures to studio sessions with Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, as well as artists Willem de Kooning and Gilbert and George. Always unassuming and fresh, her work displays a warmth and a feeling for the precise moment that captures the essence of any subject.
Whether photographing her children, celebrities, animals, or a fleeting moment of everyday life, she did so without pretension or artifice.
This retrospective volume—selected from her archive of over 200,000 images—is produced in close collaboration with Paul McCartney and their children. Included are forewords by Paul, Stella, and Mary McCartney. As such, it is a moving personal journal and a lasting testament to Linda’s talent.
