In sun printing, a process invented by William Henry Fox Talbot in the 1830s, natural sunlight is used to produce an image on plain paper treated with a mixture of minerals without a darkroom. Linda McCartney began experimenting with this technique early in her career, and the results are some of her finest photographs. Uniquely combining the spontaneity of modern photography with the subtlety of old printing methods, here are richly-hued portraits of family and friends as well as moody, deeply-shadowed landscapes and still lifes-reproduced in their rich brown or deep blue tones.
