MCCARTNEY FAMILY PORTRAITS
Whether you know her as "the wife", the "bandmate/tamborine player", or the "rock n' roll photographer", there's no denying that the photographic career of Linda McCartney (yes, wife of Paul) is vast. She is perhaps best known for her iconic imagery of legends like Hendrix, the Stones, and Joplin. But, my absolute favorite pieces of her work are the intimate portraits of her family, taken mostly on their remote farm in East Sussex. I come back to these images often as a reference to how important it is to try and capture your family growing up, the personalities and emotions. The photos at time feel playful or melancholic, they waiver from being candid observations to true works of art. At the heart of them though is McCartney’s ability to strip away the layer of fame that brought attention to her family, and allow them to just be…a jovial husband who adored his family, and apparently loved wrapping them inside his jacket...often.
