Little, Brown, 1999 - Photography - 93 pages
Linda McCartneys photographs of quiet moments reveal her innate sense of composition. These images, such as Through a Glass Teapot, add to McCartneys inspirational legacy. The expert way the lens catches a cactus flower or a view of hills transports us into moments of utter serenity and makes apparent the mastery of her technique, which she cultivated by years of work. A wide variety of processes, from photogravure still lifes to Polaroid transfers, showcases McCartneys love of experimentation. Her photographs evoke a sense of a world wide open, as the collection is aptly titled. Her artistic expertise and ability to capture a sense of freedom make these photographs endlessly enchanting and fascinating. Linda McCartney took photographs for more than thirty years. Her work has been exhibited at the ICP, New York; the Royal Photographic Society, Bath; The U.K.s National Museum of Photography, Film & Television, Bradford, England; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Previous books of her works and photographs include Linda McCartneys Sixties and Roadworks. Additionally, she is the author of Linda on Tour: Over 200 Meat-Free Dishes from Around the World. Her photography could be disarmingly earthy Her eye was definitely precise. Ëœ New York Times
