Although in a sense a retrospective of Linda McCartney's photographic work, this book is not a compilation made in retrospect but a book she intended to make and worked toward over a long period of time. The photographs featured form a document of 30 years of Linda's life. They range from intimate but expressive observations of her close family to her own brand of spontaneous surrealism; perceptive portraits mingle with witty juxtapositions of compositional elements. An over-riding factor binds together the rich variety of her imagery - it was consistently mediated through the sensibility of a photographer with a special human warmth.

Review: Light from Within

User Review  - James Moes - Goodreads

Great selection of grainy photos from the cultural 60s ... and a few real winners of rural/domestic life. A sensitive and loving vision comes through - photographs that speak of a life well lived. Read full review
