IN 1966, DURING A BRIEF STINT AS A RECEPTIONIST FOR _TOWN AND COUNTRY_ MAGAZINE, LINDA EASTMAN snagged a press pass to a very exclusive promotional event for the ROLLING STONES aboard a yacht on the Hudson River; her fresh, candid photographs of the band were far superior to the formal shots made by the band’s official photographer, and she was instantly on the way to making a name for herself as a top rock ’n’ roll photographer. In May 1968, with her portrait of ERIC CLAPTON, she entered the record books as the first female photographer to have her work featured on the cover of _Rolling Stone_.
During her tenure as the leading photographer of the late 1960s musical scene, Eastman captured many of rock’s most important musicians on film, including ARETHA FRANKLIN, JIMI HENDRIX, BOB DYLAN, JANIS JOPLIN, SIMON & GARFUNKEL, THE WHO, THE DOORS, and the GRATEFUL DEAD. In 1967, Linda went to London to document the “Swinging Sixties,” where she met Paul McCartney at the Bag ’O Nails club and subsequently photographed the BEATLES during a launch event for the _Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band _album. Paul and Linda fell in love, and were married on March 12, 1969. For the next three decades, until her untimely death, she devoted herself to her FAMILY, VEGETARIANISM, ANIMAL RIGHTS, AND PHOTOGRAPHY.
From her early rock ’n’ roll portraits, through the final years of the Beatles, to touring with Wings and raising four children with Paul, LINDA CAPTURED HER WHOLE WORLD ON FILM. Her shots range from spontaneous family pictures to studio sessions with STEVIE WONDER and MICHAEL JACKSON, as well as artists WILLEM DE KOONING and GILBERT AND GEORGE. Always unassuming and fresh, her work displays a warmth and a feeling for the precise moment that captures the essence of any subject.
THE PHOTOGRAPHER
LINDA MCCARTNEY (née Eastman) was born in New York in 1941. She took a photo course with Hazel Archer and studied art history at the University of Arizona before settling in New York City, where she began her photo career shooting rock portraits. Outside of her photography, which has been exhibited in over 50 galleries worldwide including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the National Portrait Gallery, London, and the International Center of Photography, New York, Linda McCartney is known for her passionate animal rights activism and her staunch vegetarianism. She wrote cookbooks and founded her own brand of frozen vegetarian meals, all the while raising a family, continuing to take photographs, and participating as a Wings band member alongside Paul McCartney. She died in 1998 at the age of 56.
