This is a major retrospective of the photography of Linda McCartney, curated by Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney.

The exhibition features photographs of iconic names and moments in music from the 1960s, along with more intimate and emotional later work by this acclaimed and prolific photographer.

A wealth of ephemera and archive material is on public display for the first time. It includes one of her diaries from the 1960s, bringing new insights into the contemporary music scene of the era and the beginnings of her photographic career.

Cameras used by McCartney are on show along with photographic equipment and vintage magazines that have been uncovered from her expansive archive. Polaroids and contact sheets reveal her creativity and use of different photographic techniques. There is also a section dedicated to the photographs she took in Scotland and themes of family life, self portraits, nature and social commentary.
