From the Publisher
Early in her career as a photographer, Linda McCartney began to experiment with the technique of sun printing, where natural sunlight is used to produce an image on plain paper treated with a mixture of minerals without a darkroom. Here is a selection of her prints made using this method, in the rich brown & deep blue hues resulting from the process. The effect shown in these photographs, whether richly-hued portraits of family & friends or moody, deeply-shadowed landscapes, is a unique combination of the spontaneity of modern photography & the subtlety of the early printing technique. Her strong images -- a horse jumping in corral, an autumn still life, or John Hurt with face upturned -- have a painterly quality rarely seen in photographs. This edition will include an introduction by Sir Paul McCartney in addition to a foreword by Linda & an essay on the sun print technique by historian Robert Lassam.
