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 McCartneyâ€™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.
