LINDA McCARTNEY was a prolific photographer and began her four decade career chronicling the musical revolution of the 1960s. In 1967 she was voted US Female Photographer of the Year and in 1968 she became the first female photographer to shoot the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Her photographic work went on to focus predominantly on the themes of social commentary, domesticity, nature and the experimentation of printing techniques. Linda's exhibitions have been exhibited in over 70 cities and feature in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum and National Portrait Gallery. Between 1967 and 1969 Linda frequently photographed The Beatles, including the Get Back sessions, and she married Paul McCartney in March 1969. As well as her photographic career Linda was a cookbook author, vegetarian pioneer, musician and mother of four.

Reviews

"McCartney's skill as a photographer precedes this quirky, personal collection that will only strengthen her legacy. Many parents take casual snapshots of bathing children covered in foam, but only in McCartney's lens is one transformed into an instant Klimt painting."
"Little pieces of art."
"An intimate glimpse into the life of a much-loved family."
"Fans of the 2011 monograph Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs will love this more intimate collection."
"In a nutshell, this is a much-needed photographic companion for those who enjoy positioning their eyes to an authentically retro lens."
"Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney share their intimate family photo album."
