    1 thought on “Linda McCartney. Life in Photographs

    1. I love, love, love looking at Linda McCartney's photography. She did so much for the photography world and showed us what no one else could. Will definitely be "reading" through this a hundred more times before it has to go back to the library.

    2. It was fun to see the photos of bands and the McCartney family from the sixties and seventies; boy, do I feel old. Some of the photos I didn't think were that astounding and not much different from a photo that I could take. I'm wondering about some that didn't make it into the book. But I passed an enjoyable hour flipping through the photos and reading forewards from Annie Leibovitz and the McCartney's daughters, Mary and Stella.

    3. Beautiful photos, of bands and famous singers from the sixties and seventies, and of course photos of the McCartney family (not the Sears style, but less perfect, more "real" ones). Linda truly was a talented photographer, who caught the small, behind the scenes moments .

    4. 'Linda McCartney - Life in Photographs' is a remarkable tribute to a photographer, who was first, and foremost a life partner and mother. Linda passed away at the age of 56 in 1998, succumbing to cancer, leaving behind a treasure trove of extraordinary images. Prefacing the book are commentaries by her former husband, Paul McCartney, and two of their daughters Stella and Mary. Another renowned photographer, Annie Leibovitz also shares some thoughts. Throughout the book is a collection of photogr [...]

    5. First off, if you do get this book it will cost you a fortune to get it sent, and you may need a big bag if like me you carry it home from the library (with two bags of shopping as well). It's huge, a giant of a book.So Linda married Paul, and sung in a band, and had a bundle of cute kids and everybody looks wonderful when they are young. It seems funny to me that after decades of the seventies looking dorky, suddenly in 2011 everything looks cool, even the cheap polyester clothes and bedraggled [...]

    6. Para aquellos amantes de las fotografías históricas (el rock tiene un par de décadas sobre su lomo) este se aproxima a la perfección (existe? o es un mero límite que ponemos los humanos). John, Paul, Ringo, The Who, Jimmy, los Zeppelin, Jagger y Richards en plan revienteParticularmente me gustó una foto de unos recalcitrantes ingleses en el medio de la campiña, se los veía sediciosos, y asombrados porque alguien les estaba tomando una instantánea (toda foto es una instantánea, Susan So [...]

    7. amazing book! i feel like i got a glimpse of who she was just by looking at the photographs. that doesn't always happen with every photographer out there. and usually, when i look through artists portfolios and collections, some of them give off the feeling of pretentiousness, like they tried too hard. with linda's pictures, it all felt easy, and natural, almost stripped down, and also extremely personal. she lived during a very exciting time with so many events and things happening, and seeing [...]

    8. I've looked at all the pics, read the intros by Annie, Paul and the kids; marked the book read, BUT, this book is so amazing that I will never be done looking at it. The pics not only give you a glance to the past - to rock-n-roll-royalty - to Lindas family, they also provoke thought and wonder. Linda McCartney's Life in Photographs will be a fave for a very long time!

    9. While she's probably more known for her photographs of rock-and-roll legends, it was the sweet capture of day to day life that I most appreciated. I found this book and the selected photographs inspiring. I want to pick up my camera and look around at my life again; I bet there's a lot more here that I haven't been noticing.

    10. My first time checking out her photos, and it makes me want to see more. spans her entire life (well, career) so there's only a bit in each era and it jumps around a bit. I'd love to see enough of her work to see her evolution as an artist more gradually.

    11. "I think a photograph has to stand on its own without any words" -Linda"Her love of nature, children and animals meant she could find fascinating images all around her." - Paul"Her lens was her way of expressing herself." -Stella

    12. Well-curated collection of Linda McCartney's photographs. I especially liked the ones of young Stella, covered in toddler dirt.

    13. There is no real story here, as it states in the title. But it's kind of a neat way to see the Beatles in a different light, rather than the music sensation they were. Great pics told a great story.

    14. I loved Linda McCartney's stunning photos of her beautiful family and various rockstar legends. I found the sweet portraits of her children the most compelling.
