A double publication, two books within a book, celebrating Mary McCartney's naturalistic approach to photography.
This highly personal collection of photographs amassed over the course of her career is part travelogue, part behind-the-scenes diary, part family album; brightly coloured vignettes impart a joyful vibrancy, contrasted with softly-hued moments of quiet contemplation and reflection. Disregarding the formal rigours of composition and technique, the self-taught photographer pursues instead the ability to tell a story within her images. As a collection of images, they evoke no particular time or place, but rather invite the viewer to experience McCartney's unique and tender vision. (GOST)
This publication features rare and poignant encounters with Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, Milla Jovovich, PJ Harvey, a host of screen, stage and cabaret performers, and McCartney's family, especially her sister Stella. It is introduced by a series of seven haikus by Dr John Cooper Clarke.
