In May 1968, Linda McCartney became the first female photographer to have her work on the cover of Rolling Stone. During her tenure as the leading photographer of the late 1960s musical scene, she captured many of rock's most important musicians on film, including Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Simon & Garfunkel, The Who, The Doors, and the Grateful Dead. In 1967, Linda met Paul McCartney at London's Bag O' Nails club and subsequently photographed The Beatles during an album launch event. Paul and Linda were married on March 12, 1969. For the next three decades, until her untimely death, she devoted herself to her family, vegetarianism, animal rights, and photography. From her early rock portraits through raising four children with Paul, Linda captured her whole world on film, from spontaneous family pictures to studio sessions. Always unassuming and fresh, her work displays a warmth and feeling 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--selected from her archive of over 200,000 images--was produced in close collaboration with Paul and their children.--From publisher description
