Paul McCartney to stage exhibition of Linda's photographs
( dpa ) - Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney is to stage an exhibition of photographs by his former wife Linda to mark the 10th anniversary of her death this year, it was reported Wednesday.
Sir Paul, 65, said the display, including some private images which have never been seen in public before, will go on show in London on April 24.
It had taken him three years to put together a "sensitive selection" of works demonstrating her career from the 1960s to 1998.
The ex-Beatle, who is currently going through a bitter divorce from his second wife, Heather Mills, added that Linda's photographic output had been "prodigious."
"The photographs not only illustrate her incredible talent as an artist, but as someone who was very much connected to the culture of the times and wasn't afraid to challenge herself or her subject," said the musician.
Linda McCartney, who married the rock star in 1969, began her career as a music photographer, capturing subjects including Art Garfunkel, Janis Joplin and Mick Jagger.
She met Sir Paul in America while taking pictures of the Beatles in 1967. The singer was at her bedside when she died in April 1998 following a battle with breast cancer.
