As women artists, we were branches of the same tree called INVISIBLE. Linda, it’s so nice to see your work being exhibited right in the center of New York City now. Each work shows your incredible sensitivity as a first rate photographer of our time.
Thank you, Linda, for still giving us such beautiful experiences with your work.
I miss you.

Linda McCartney – Life in Photographs

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibit Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs will be on view at the gallery June 2, 2011 – July 29, 2011.

Linda McCartney: 'Mirror, Self Portrait' (1992)

Linda McCartney (1941 – 1998) was an active and admired photographer for over three decades. Her large body of work is known for its celebrated portraits, a wide range of subject matter, spontaneity and a lack of pretension.

Linda McCartney: 'Kitchen Window, Scotland' (1979)

This exhibition is planned in conjunction with the release of a retrospective book of the same name to be published by Taschen (May 2011). The volume was edited by Alison Castle; and Annie Leibovitz and Martin Harrison are contributing authors. The monograph and the exhibit’s images were selected from her archive of 200,000 images and negatives and were planned in close collaboration with Paul McCartney and their four children.

Linda McCartney: 'Willem de Kooning, Long Island, NY' (1968)

Linda McCartney was born in New York City and studied art history at the University of Arizona and also attended evening courses in photography. After settling back in New York, she began her photography career in 1966 shooting portraits of rock musicians. By 1968, her portrait of Eric Clapton was on the cover of Rolling Stone and she made history as the first woman photographer to achieve this milestone.

Linda McCartney: 'Jimi, Central Park, New York' (1967)

She captured that era’s most important musicians: Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan and many others including her future husband.

Linda McCartney: 'The Beatles at Brian Epstein's House, London' (1967)

In 1967, while working in London, she photographed The Beatles at an album launch event and met band member Paul McCartney. They wed in 1969 and raised a family and performed in their band Wings together.

Linda McCartney: 'Paul, Stella and James, Scotland' (1982)

From the mid 1960’s to 1998, McCartney captured her whole life on film: rock and roll portraits, her family, travels, celebrities, animals, and still lives. Her fresh and candid photographs display warmth and feeling for her subjects and are a strong and lasting reminder of her life’s journey and her artistic talent.

    Linda’s photography enables us to see the world through her eyes. You can almost feel what she was feeling when she hit the shutter to capture the moment. I wish the exhibit would come to Detroit.

    I remember seeing Linda’s show in Soho in 1983…time is love, love is art, art is time.

  5. I love her Linda’s photography and her work as an animal right activist. I will be able to go after this weekend since I live in NYC area. My mom is an amazing photographer in Brazil, and did so much, I own my great life all to good photography and to her hard work and dedication..Although I didn’t follow that path, I admire all the great photographers since my mom passion for photography led me to crave good art.

    The photo of Paul with the children in Scotland is great … Unforgettable Linda.
    Linda & Paul always taught us to love the wild life, we must remember it forever.
    I would like to present Paul with a painting honoring Linda.
    Paul in Brazil, showed his humility, kindness … & his spectacular art.
    Love you all

    Hi Yoko!!!

    Impressive work of Linda Mc Cartney, very talented, keep to register of various events and facts that marked the history. True relics and works of art photos, you need great sensitivity to capture the right moment through the lens of good photographer, I speak with conviction because I am trained in journalism and did my essay on photojournalism that much love.
    Ah! I love seeing you and Paul McCartney together. My two idols of childhood pre-teens that I so love and admire.

    Peace and love forever!!!

    Being a photographer myself, I have been a fan of Linda’s work for over 3 decades. My favorites were her ‘blue’ photographs.

    My best,
