Following her best-selling TASCHEN monograph Life in photographs, discover a more intimate and highly personal side of Linda McCartney's photographic work in The Polaroid Diaries. Interspersed portraits, still lifes and interior compositions affirm McCartney's bold eye for pattern, texture, colour, and elegant use of light. The images, seemingly random, are flawlessly composed, revealing a unique artistic sensibility.
The collection focuses on McCartney's distinctive way of seeing the world and her family, through charming and quirky portraits of Paul McCartney and the couple's four children. We see them pulling faces and in matching pyjamas. We see James pouring water on himself, and Mary and Stella playing dress-up. There's dancing, eating, horse riding and countless moments of everyday life on their farm in Southern England.
The Polaroid Diaries curates more than 200 moments from the early 1970s until the mid-1990s, along with a foreword by Chrissie Hynde and an essay by art critic Ekow Eshun.
