Le Pavillon Populaire, a space dedicated to photography in the city of Montpellier, will showcase the first retrospective in France of the work of photographer Linda McCartney, from 21st February – 4th May 2014. A remarkable set of more than 200 prints and original documents will be displayed spanning her prolific career; from her pictures of the most famous musicians of the ‘swinging sixties’, to her personal and experimental photographs.
Her photographic autobiography is also a moving account of family life with her husband, Paul McCartney. She worked with the playfulness of Polaroids and elegantly created a spontaneous visual language. Linda McCartney uniquely combined the innovative spirit of American photographers and the intimate ambition that is found in her most personal photographic chronicles. Exhibition Curator: Gilles Mora and members of the McCartney family, in collaboration with Claudia Schmid of Linda Enterprises Ltd. Linda Louise McCartney (nee Eastman) was born in New York City on 24th September 1941. She graduated from Scarsdale High School, Westchester County, New York in 1960, and went on to study at the University of Arizona, where she majored in Art History.
