Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs - The Exhibition
Phillips de Pury Gallery – 7 – 16th June 2011 Howick
Place, London, SW1P 1BB
This week sees the opening of a new Linda McCartney exhibition at
the Phillips de Pury Gallery in London. The exhibition is made up of
26 images taken from the newly published and very recently released
Taschen book ‘Linda McCartney: Life In Photographs’. The
selection included in the book from Linda’s huge photographic
archive – made in collaboration with Paul McCartney and his
children – is a moving testament to a photographer of great
subtlety and versatility.
On Monday night Paul along with his daughters Mary and Stella went
to a private view of the exhibition with friends and family including
Sir Peter Blake, Jo Whiley, David Gilmour, Chrissie Hynde, David
Walliams, Tracey Emin, Sam Taylor Wood, Aaron Johnson and Jools Holland.
The exhibition presents a unique opportunity to purchase
exhibition-quality prints from a moving personal collection ranging
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.
