If your interest lies in the Swingin’ Sixties or the Rockin’ Seventies (trust us, it was a thing) then this first major retrospective of Linda McCartney’s photography is something of a must-do, even if you have to fly to Vienna to see it.

Linda McCartney is at Kunst Haus Wien, Vienna, Austria, 6 June to 6 October, kunsthauswien.com
