About

The book “Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs” was published on June 1, 2011 by TASCHEN. The selection of photos – from an archive of over 200.000 ! – was done by Paul McCartney and his children.

The photograph of Paul McCartney on the cover of the book was taken in Los Angeles in June 1968 when Paul was on promotional duties for Apple.

From TASCHEN:

A lasting testament to the talent of Linda McCartney, produced in close collaboration with Paul McCartney and their children. From spontaneous family pictures to studio sessions with Stevie Wonder, Linda’s images are remarkable for their unassuming freshness,warmth of feeling, and intrinsic eye for the essence of any subject. […]

From her early rock ’n’ roll portraits, through the final years of The Beatles, 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 encounters with 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 volume is a lasting and deeply personal testament to Linda’s talent, produced in close collaboration with the McCartney family, with forewords by Paul, Stella, and Mary McCartney.

It’s funny. I think when you have a bit of distance from someone you have lost, you can just look at it with pleasure. Because they were great times. It is tinged with sadness because you lost that person, but the main feeling for me looking at these is joy. Mostly, these pictures are uplifting.
