Linda McCartney & Mary McCartney

Mother Daughter

01 June — 02 September, 2018

An exciting exhibition in which the links between the past and the present create an emotional and inspiring journey, on which we travel with the late Linda McCartney and Mary McCartney into their vast lives.


This exhibition, Mother Daughter, first shown at the Gagosian Gallery in New York, is a treasure trove of moments derived from relaxed interactions with family, a dazzling array of celebrities–Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, B.B King, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Kate Moss, Rihanna – and everyday life. There is an almost tangible shared sensibility between mother and daughter in how they establish an emotional rapport with their subjects and exact a sense of their true selves.

"The feeling of intimacy and observing people and striving for the intensity of characters evolved into why I’m obsessed with taking pictures." – Mary McCartney
