Linda McCartney - Life in Photographs
New digital book brings Linda's world exclusively to the iBookstore on iPad from Thursday 25th April
From her early rock'n'roll portraits and final years with The Beatles to her touring days with Wings and raising four children with Paul, Linda McCartney captured her whole world on film.
Her shots range from spontaneous family pictures to sessions with Janis Joplin 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, McCartney did so without pretension or artifice.
Made exclusively by TASCHEN for iBooks, Linda McCartney – Life in Photographs features:
• Over 170 photographs selected from Linda's archive of over 200,000 images — most of which users can pinch to zoom.
• Forewords by Paul, Stella, and Mary McCartney, texts by Annie Leibovitz and Martin Harrison, and excerpts from interviews with Linda from BBC’s highly acclaimed 1994 “Behind the Lens” profile.
• A bonus video interview with Paul McCartney and his daughters, Stella and Mary.
This collection was produced in close collaboration with Paul McCartney and their children. As such, it is a moving personal journal and a lasting testament to Linda’s talent.

Linda McCartney (née Eastman) was born in New York in 1941. She took a photo course with Hazel Archer and studied art history at the University of Arizona before settling in New York City, where she began her photo career shooting rock portraits. Outside of her photography, which has been exhibited in over 50 galleries worldwide including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the National Portrait Gallery, London, the Bonni Benrubi Gallery, New York, and the International Center of Photography, New York, Linda McCartney is known for her passionate animal rights activism and her staunch vegetarianism. She wrote cookbooks and founded her own brand of frozen vegetarian meals, all the while raising a family, continuing to take photographs, and participating as a Wings band member alongside Paul McCartney. She died in 1998 at the age of 56.
