Paul to stage exhibit of Linda photos in UK in April.

Paul is putting a retrospective of his late wife’s work this spring.  Her photos are timeless and capture some of the largest names of a generation.  You can’t help but be in awe of Linda and some of her photographs.  She was an unassuming fly on the wall, privy to many moments in musical history that she photographed with beauty and humanity. 

Paul is sharing some of those photos with the public at a retrospective art showing in the UK in the spring.

James Hyman Gallery and Paul McCartney are delighted to announce an exhibition of photographs by Linda McCartney.

This is the first major exhibition of platinum prints by Linda McCartney to be presented in the UK. With the full support of Paul McCartney and his family, this exhibition is the result of a three-year collaboration with gallerist and art historian James Hyman.

Paul McCartney says: “An exhibition presenting the range of Linda’s photographic work is long overdue, so I’m obviously pleased that this show is happening. James Hyman, my daughter Mary, and I have worked on it now for three years, and the result is a sensitive selection of works that really demonstrates Linda’s creative output as a photographer. The photographs not only illustrate her incredible talent as an artist, but as someone who was very much connected to the culture of the times, and wasn’t afraid to challenge herself, or her subject.”

Photographed from the 1960s up until the late 1990s, these pictures present a personal record of the times and feature many rarely seen works, as well as better known images.

The exhibition includes portraits of Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel, Gilbert & George and Mick Jagger. It also presents landscapes, intimate interiors, self-portraits and family life.

To ensure each photographic print remains true to Linda McCartney’s vision Paul Caffell (with whom she worked throughout her career) has personally printed each platinum print, whilst Paul and Mary McCartney oversaw the process and gave final approval.

Beautifully presented as large platinum prints, the photographs are for sale in very limited editions, and authenticated with a certificate signed by Paul McCartney.

In addition, a catalogue will be available with personal contributions from Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Peter Blake, Brian Clarke, Humphrey Ocean and Paul Caffell.
