From the early days of her photographic career and throughout her 30-year vocation as a photographer, Linda McCartney was unafraid of breaking the rules and possessed a keen eye for the transient moment. This collection of her photographs reveals that eye at work.

Light From Within Summary

Light From Within by Linda McCartney

Although in a sense a retrospective of Linda McCartney's photographic work, this book is not a compilation made in retrospect but a book she intended to make and worked toward over a long period of time. The photographs featured form a document of 30 years of Linda's life. They range from intimate but expressive observations of her close family to her own brand of spontaneous surrealism; perceptive portraits mingle with witty juxtapositions of compositional elements. An over-riding factor binds together the rich variety of her imagery - it was consistently mediated through the sensibility of a photographer with a special human warmth. The book includes four haikus, published here for the first time, which Linda completed just days before she passed away. She had intended to write three further haikus, but apart from the title, taken from the lyrics of one of her own songs, the contents, both pictures and words were finalized in her lifetime.

Light From Within Reviews

'These photographs help me understand why humans are so addicted to images. They intoxicate me, and the narrative drive of this book makes me turn and turn the pages, only to get to the end and have to start from the beginning all over again. Powerful indeed.' RSA JOURNAL

'A feast for 1960s nostalgics.' THE TIMES

'Whether you're a Linda-fan or not, you can't help but admire the love and reverence she inspired in those who knew her.' GLAMOUR
