On Order



The images of "Light from Within" reflect Linda's wide range of passions and interests. The photographs chosen include portraits taken during her years as the Fillmore East photographer in the 1960s; more recent portraits of her family and illustrious friends; landscapes -- some quietly lovely, some revealing a sense of irony; and finally, photographs from every era of her life that seize the passing moment and convey a spare beauty as well as Linda's own unique brand of surrealism. This unique collection is intuitive, poetic, and resonant with meaning.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The late Linda McCartney was a prodigious filmmaker, cookbook author and photographer. Light from Within: Photojournals follows Linda McCartney's Sixties and other collections of her b&w shots, taken mostly in the late '60s, '70s and early '80s. Forty duotone and 75 color shots including Allen Ginsberg standing in front of the Hampton Jitney bus; Paul, Stella and James McCartney in a farmyard; the Grateful Dead in Central Park were chosen by daughter Mary and Martin Harrison, with a foreword from McCartney's Beatle husband.
