I went to see Linda McCartney's "Sixties Portrait of an Era" exhibit today. Watched a fortyfive minute video and looked at the photographs. The exhibit is absolutely amazing. She was an incredible photographer.
I purchased her book on the way out and I am sitting here reading it and looking at the photographs and found myself totally absorbed in it. Transported from my normal thoughts to a total focus on the text and pictures.
I never really thought a lot of her work and figured it was largely due to connections. Quite the opposite is true. She established herself as a prominent photographer long before meeting Paul. Her last name was Eastman and contrary to what most think, she was not in any way related to Kodak.
If you have an opportunity to see the exhibit and read the book I would encourage you to do so.
