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.
And who doesn’t want to fly to Vienna, right? This exclusive shot taken on a Wings tour, should whet your appetite for a show that covers a life’s work.
The retrospective takes the viewer on a trip from young Linda Eastman’s time as a fledging rock photographer in her native New York in the early Sixties through Wings’ heyday and beyond, into a more reflective period of still lifes and family portraits.
But if it’s famous faces you want, you’re in the right place with subjects including giants of music (Hendrix), counterculture heroes (Ginsberg) and acclaimed artists (Gilbert & George). Two thumbs up, as Macca would have it.
Linda McCartney is at Kunst Haus Wien, Vienna, Austria, 6 June to 6 October, kunsthauswien.com
