“From Where I Stand embodies the way I see things,” explains Mary McCartney of her new photography book.
Delving into her complete archive – which stretches back to the 1990s – McCartney has chosen a selection of her very best work that ranges from intimate portraits of famous characters to backstage shots at fashion shows, concerts and ballets. Establishing a close relationship with many of her sitters, whom she has photographed over many years, McCartney’s images give an intriguing and intimate insight into her world and the people and events that have shaped her. Daughter of photographer Linda McCartney and The Beatles’ Paul McCartney, she has inherited her mother’s talent for image-making and her father’s Access All Areas pass, giving her unique exposure to some of the greatest events and eminent people, which she captures with beautiful delicacy and sincerity. McCartney muses on Tracey Emin, Talking Heads and taking her dream photograph with Lucy Davies for AnOther Magazine, here.
There will be also be an exhibition of Mary McCartney’s photographs at the Michael Hoppen Gallery from 22nd October to 20th November and she will also be taking part in the Photo Voice Lecture series at 7.30pm on 11th November.
