A Retrospective of Linda McCartney’s Photography

Linda McCartney, Photographer (1941-1998)

Linda McCartney was an American professional photographer whose original photos still sell today for $7,000 to $25,000. She made extensive portfolios of celebrity portraits including the singers Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Simon & Garfunkel, and Mick Jagger, the artists Gilbert & George, and of course, The Beatles.

Husband Paul McCartney and photographer daughter Mary have sifted through thousands of photos and negatives to present the first major retrospective of Linda McCartney’s work. The exhibition will be staged at Hyman’s Mayfair gallery in London between April and June.

The Mayfair gallery is only a 5-minute walk from where Paul and Linda first met at a gig in the Bag O’Nails club in 1967. He was a mop-haired superstar and she was a US photographer on an assignment to take photos of musicians. Two years later they were married.
