Lovely Linda

She was  a pioneer among women photojournalists. The first female photographer to have her work featured on the cover of Rolling Stone. Taschen’s 300+ page volume Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs chronicles Linda’s life before she met her husband as well as her life as a wife and mother.  
The publisher’s description sums it up best:
From her early rock ’n’ roll portraits, through the final years of the Beatles, via touring with Wings to 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 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. These photos are only a few from the selection of shots that will thrill any fan of 60s rock culture… or indeed, any true fan of photography itself.

  • These photos are fanastic. My favorite is the one of paul with the baby, linda taking the photo behind him, and the dog in the doorway. Makes me want to pick up my camera right now and call the troops into the bathroom, so inspiring. Thanks for sharing. Your blog is great!
