Linda Eastman was an American up-and-coming photographer of rock ‘n’ roll bands when she traveled to London to record the cultural revolution in the 1960s, referred to as the “Swinging Sixties.” It was then that she met Paul McCartney in a bar.
They wed in 1969, and she ended up being Linda McCartney— the other half of a Beatles star and the mommy of Stella McCartney, the renowned fashion designer to the celebrities.
Throughout her life in the limelight, Linda took some 200,000 photographs of artists in their private and public lives. She was the very first female photographer to land the cover a Rolling Stone publication with her photo of Eric Clapton, and the only photographer that has both published a photo on the cover and appeared on the cover (with other half Paul McCartney.).
Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs is a new 288-page book, which highlights Linda’s photography work, including intimate images of her household. The compilation of these pictures were on display in 2011 at New York’s Bonni Benrubi Gallery.
