Non-Fiction Photography

A retrospective of Linda McCartney\'s life and photography

In 1966, during a brief stint as a receptionist for Town and Country magazine, Linda Eastman snagged a press pass to a very exclusive promotional event for the Rolling Stones aboard a yacht on the Hudson River; her fresh, candid photographs of the band were far superior to the formal shots made by the bandís official photographer, and she was instantly on the way to making a name for herself as a top rock íní roll photographer. On May 11, 1968, when her portrait of Eric Clapton was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone, she entered the record books as the first woman to have that honor. During her tenure as the leading photographer of the late 1960sí musical scene, she captured many of rockís most important musicians on film, including Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Simon & Garfunkel, The Who, The Doors, and the Grateful Dead. In 1967, Linda went to London to document the \"Swinging Sixties,\" where she met Paul McCartney at the Bag ío Nails club and subsequently photographed the Beatles during a launch event for the Sgt. Pepperís Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Paul and Linda fell in love, and were married on March 12, 1969. For the next three decades, until her untimely death, she devoted herself to her family, vegetarianism, animal rights, and photography.

From her early rock íní 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.

This retrospective volumeóselected from her archive of over 200,000 imagesóis produced in close collaboration with Paul McCartney and their children. As such, it is a moving personal journal and a lasting testament to Lindaís talent.

Additional to our limited and art editions, this book is also available as unlimited trade edition.
