Mary McCartney: From Where I Stand

Mary McCartney: From Where I Stand Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Where I Stand is photographer Mary McCartneys first book, introducing the very best work spanning her career from the mid-1990s to the present. These images are a reflection not only of Marys personal world, but also of the unique relationships she establishes with the people she photographs. She constantly seeks to put her subjects at ease, watching and waiting for them to let the camera in rather than imposing any formal ideas of composition or technique. The book is centered around an outstanding collection of portraits, from 50s-inspired rockabillies to Paul and Linda McCartney, Madonna, Bono, Debbie Harry, Elvis Costello, Dennis Hopper, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Moss. Here are amazing people, places, and events as seen through Marys eyes: the intimacy of backstage preparations among the corps de ballet at the Royal Opera House; the raw energy of fashion shows and rock concerts, both on stage and off; the private spaces of home and family; and wittily observed vignettes of visual delight.

Synopsis:

The daughter of Sir Paul McCartney and the late Linda McCartney reveals her own personal take on the world with her soulful, elegant, and emotionally resonant images. This collection is comprised of the best from her archive of informal portraits of friends and family.

Synopsis:

Mary McCartney is the newest talent to emerge from the great McCartney family, which has already given the world Sir Paul (her father); fashion designer Stella (her younger sister); and Linda, Marys late mother, a renowned photographer and Marys inspiration. In Mary McCartney: From Where I Stand, Mary reveals her own personal take on the world with her soulful, elegant, and emotionally resonant images. This collection, her first book, is comprised of the best from her archive of informal portraits of friends, family, and such famous faces as Kate Moss, Dennis Hopper, Helen Mirren, Michael Stipe, and Gwyneth Paltrow; of landscapes and still lifes taken at home and on the road; and of performers and entertainers taken both on- and offstage at concerts, fashion shows, the theater, and the ballet. This book offers rare, insightful glimpses of people, places, moments, and events that draw the viewer into private worlds with their intimacy, warmth, and charm.
