MARY MCCARTNEY
FROM WHERE I STAND

Mary's unique access and personal relationships with her subjects have resulted in an outstanding collection of portraits including Paul and Linda McCartney, Madonna, Bono, Elvis Costello, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Moss among many others. The relaxed atmosphere she creates during the sittings allows her subject's true character and humanity to come through.

In this exhibition Mary McCartney shows her world of fashion, personalities, dance, and family from her low keyed perspective. Her photographs are not staged or manipulated, rather, she prefers the off-guard moment, when her subject is most natural and the essence of the personality comes through. Her work is intimate and unposed, the subjects comfortable in themselves. She prefers to show the world from backstage, the accidental, behind the scenes and nautrally composed.

As the daughter of photographer Linda McCartney, Mary grew up in the world of photography and took to it early, taking her first professional photographs 15 years ago. Her world is in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery (England) and has appeared in Harper's Bazaar and Interview Magazine.
