Linda McCartney Retrospective @ James Hyman Gallery

James Hyman Gallery in London is showing a retrospective of the work of Linda MCartney through July 2008. Mostly known for her marriage to Paul McCartney, her vegge meals and her daughter Stella McCartney, Linda McCartney however was originally (and remained) a photographer. An observer more than a creator, she captured the life around her. To me her most compelling imagery is that of her family. There is an image of a young Paul McCartney somewhere on a farm in England , with children and an animal running around that is iconic in its hippy idealism.
Read the This is London review by Louise Jury and The Telegraph's written by Alastair Sooke.
