Synopsis: Evoking a sense of the world wide open, Linda McCartney's photographs capture a sense of freedom. Standing as her legacy, the expert way the lens catches a cactus flower or a view of the hills transports one into moments of utter serenity and makes apparent the mastery of her technique. 28 tritone and 10 color photos.
From Booklist: The variety of photographic methods that McCartney used and the quiet exactitude with which she used them are stunning. It is refreshing to know that she never stopped exploring the capabilities of the medium and of herself as a photographer. This posthumous volume of image after image printed and framed to stand alone--a distant oak in mist, a still life of Indian woodcuts, a colorprint of the heads of poppies--resembles a book of poems. The sense of intimacy is almost overwhelming, as if these were pages from McCartney's diary. There are no pop superstars here, no high-fashion diversions. Instead, a sweaty teapot reflecting the horizon speaks volumes about one of life's quieter everyday moments. The work of Edward Weston comes to mind when viewing some of these photographs, and that of Manuel Alvarez Bravo as well. McCartney was engaged in the world. She had an eye, and she used it well. Raul Nino
