Linda McCartney – Retrospective

There are not many major exhibitions that can claim to be curated by Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney, let alone one of the photographs taken by Linda McCartney. Neither can there be many which feature iconic photographs of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix amongst its images together with many more intimate works by this acclaimed and prolific photographer.

With much of the material on display being seen by the public for the very first time the retrospective features a huge amount of private archive material, including Linda McCartney’s diary from the 1960s, which allows the viewer to obtain new insight into the contemporary music scene of the 1960’s and the beginnings of the photographic career of Linda McCartney.

Also on display are polaroids, contact sheets and cameras used by Linda to take many of these iconic images along with vintage magazines from her expansive archive.

The Retrospective features a large section of photographs Linda took in Scotland which detail and highlight the themes of family life, self portraits, nature and social commentary.

If you are in Glasgow then pay a visit to this exhibition which is running at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum until 12th January 2020.
