Opening reception Thursday, 20th February 2014

Le Pavillon Populaire, a space dedicated to photography in the city of Montpellier, will showcase the first retrospective in France of the work of photographer Linda McCartney, from 21st February – 4th May 2014. A remarkable set of more than 200 prints and original documents will be displayed spanning her prolific career; from her pictures of the most famous musicians of the ‘swinging sixties’, to her personal and experimental photographs. Her photographic autobiography is also a moving account of family life with her husband, Paul McCartney. She worked with the playfulness of Polaroids and elegantly created a spontaneous visual language. Linda McCartney uniquely combined the innovative spirit of American photographers and the intimate ambition that is found in her most personal photographic chronicles.

Exhibition Curator: Gilles Mora and members of the McCartney family, in collaboration with Claudia Schmid of Linda Enterprises Ltd.
