Linda was a truly talented artist with the camera. The way she lit her subjects and captured them candidly is really intriguing. I love her photos because I love Paul and the Beatles, and I suspect most people will buy the book because of that. But there are also some outstanding shots of Jagger, Brian Jones, Jim Morrison and some other 60's icons. Highly recommended.
From the mid sixties onwards, Linda was around the rock stars and she was taking pictures of them on stage, backstage and at their hotels and even in the studios they recorded in. The reason that Linda had a big access to the world of these rockers was that she never got in the way. She never posed her subjects and told them what to do. She watched everything around her and by doing so got natural shots of Mama Cass, Jimi Hendrix and The Yardbirds as they went through their normal days and nights.
From 1968 onwards Linda stayed close to a Beatle named Paul McCartney. In 1969 they married, and Linda became more focused on taking photos of her ever growing family and the musicans that worked with Paul. There so many great images featured within in this book that have been captured in big blown up black & white and color prints that it is hard to say what my favorite picture is in this wonderful book. Is it a young Pete Townshend all flashed-out on stage doing his "Birdman" or the 1968 Yardbirds on a London street watching the old lady stroll on? There is much within this book to absorb: Jim Morrison, cats & dogs, teacups, children, David Bowie, flowers, kitchen windows and Paul and even more Paul.
Some have said that Linda McCartney was not a great singer, but she was a gifted photographer. This book is solid proof of her art.
