Light from Within - Linda McCartney

£10.00

Product description

Although in a sense a retrospective of Linda McCartney's photographic work, this book is not a compilation made in retrospect but a book she intended to make and worked toward over a long period of time. The photographs featured form a document of 30 years of Linda's life. They range from intimate but expressive observations of her close family to her own brand of spontaneous surrealism; perceptive portraits mingle with witty juxtapositions of compositional elements. An over-riding factor binds together the rich variety of her imagery - it was consistently mediated through the sensibility of a photographer with a special human warmth.;The book includes four haikus, published here for the first time, which Linda completed just days before she passed away. She had intended to write three further haikus, but apart from the title, taken from the lyrics of one of her own songs, the contents, both pictures and words were finalized in her lifetime.
