Roadworks

Overview

Fleeting landscapes ... anonymous pedestrians ... traffic jams ... garish billboards ... fellow passengers. In this very personal "road movie," Linda McCartney takes us along on her drive across the world. Shooting from the car and on the street, she imbues her mostly black-and-white roadscapes with wit, vigor, and a from-the-hip look. Since the early days of her photographic career, when she was shooting for the Fillmore East, and throughout her thirty-year vocation as a photographer, Linda McCartney has been ...

Overview

Fleeting landscapes ... anonymous pedestrians ... traffic jams ... garish billboards ... fellow passengers. In this very personal "road movie," Linda McCartney takes us along on her drive across the world. Shooting from the car and on the street, she imbues her mostly black-and-white roadscapes with wit, vigor, and a from-the-hip look. Since the early days of her photographic career, when she was shooting for the Fillmore East, and throughout her thirty-year vocation as a photographer, Linda McCartney has been unafraid of breaking rules and has possessed a keen eye for the transient moment. These 160 photographs, many taken during her travels around the world, reveal that eye at work. From her telling photographs of Londoners caught in the moment of recognition, children playing in the waves, and a panhandler at a crossroads to those taken on tour with her husband, Paul McCartney, and his band Wings - tired roadies waiting, guitars left leaning, the exultant audience - her work is intuitive, poetic, and always truthful.

Editorial Reviews

Raul Nino
Linda McCartney's unassuming eye seems to capture the everyday in a not-so-everyday fashion. Having forged a fine career as a fashion and features photographer before becoming a part of rock 'n' roll history, her sense for stilled urgency comes across in these "personal road movie recording[s]," as she calls the images in this collection. Some photos bring the work of Robert Frank to mind--the quick blurred scene of two girls walking through an urban landscape, for example, and a "hungry" vagabond on a stretch of highway: these come across almost as homages to Frank--and not bad ones, at that. Though this whole book at times seems rather a hodgepodge, the narrative quality of each image holds its own. In both color and black-and-white, McCartney's images, which here span the globe and at least two decades, deserve the attention and study of today's younger generation of photographers. Of course, this book full of them will surely be popular on account of name recognition alone.

    Magical & Humorous

    When I first saw McCartney's work at the Oklahoma City Art Museum, I was absolutely captivated. Some are very artistic, some are funny, and others are so serene that you can't help but lose yourself in them. I bought this book so that I would always remember them (and her), and because, as a photography hobbiest, I find them inspiring. This book would make a great gift for a student or hobbiest of photography.
