Yoko Ono
  • Born: 18 February 1933
  • Birthplace: Tokyo, Japan
  • Best Known As: Avant-garde artist and widow of John Lennon
Yoko Ono's family emigrated from Japan after World War II and settled in New York, where Yoko, who had studied philosophy and music, worked as a "conceptual artist" in the early 1960s. In 1966 she met John Lennon of The Beatles and they became romantically involved. They divorced their spouses and were married in March of 1969. Although the band had already been experiencing internal tensions, when The Beatles broke up Yoko was blamed by many fans, who thought her obviously strong influence over John had pulled him away from Paul, George and, to a lesser extent, Ringo. Together John and Yoko performed and recorded, and she has also released her own records, classified as experimental compositions and avant-garde rock and roll. Her records include Approximately Infinite Universe (1973), Rising (1995) and Blue Print For Sunrise (2001).

The Linda McCartney Story

Plot

Photographer, Beatles wife, tambourine player, purveyor of vegetarian entrees: Linda McCartney led an undeniably remarkable life. The Linda McCartney Story, based on the book Linda McCartney: The Biography, attempts to present this life in all its glory. Scion of the George Eastman photography dynasty, McCartney is first shown as Linda Eastman, aspiring rock photographer. Flirting her way around the transatlantic rock scene with the likes of Jim Morrison and Mick Jagger, she eventually meets Paul McCartney during the heyday of mid-'60s Beatlemania. Thirty years of marriage, the Beatles' break-up, tambourine playing with Wings, and McCartney's ultimately unsuccessful battle with breast cancer follow, illustrating, over the course of 120 minutes, a life lived with both strength and aplomb. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

-----Linda McCartney – Life in Photographs
New digital book brings Linda's world exclusively to the iBookstore on iPad

London, UK – 25 April 2013
From her early rock'n'roll portraits and final years with The Beatles to her touring days with Wings and raising four children with Paul, Linda McCartney captured her whole world on film.

Her shots range from spontaneous family pictures to sessions with Janis Joplin and Michael Jackson, as well as artists Willem de Kooning and Gilbert and George. Always unassuming and fresh, her work displays a warmth and feeling for the precise moment that captures the essence of any subject. Whether photographing her children, celebrities, animals, or a fleeting moment of everyday life, McCartney did so without pretension or artifice.

Made exclusively by TASCHEN for iBooks, Linda McCartney – Life in Photographs features:
 
  • over 170 photographs selected from Linda's archive of over 200,000 images—most of which users can pinch to zoom
  • forewords by Paul, Stella, and Mary McCartney, texts by Annie Leibovitz and Martin Harrison, and excerpts from interviews with Linda from BBC’s highly acclaimed 1994 “Behind the Lens” profile
  • a bonus video interview with Paul McCartney and his daughters, Stella and Mary

This collection was produced in close collaboration with Paul McCartney and their children. As such, it is a moving personal journal and a lasting testament to Linda’s talent.

"I think for me, Dad, and [my sister] Mary, it was really a case of breathing new life into Mum’s work and making people aware of how inspirational and contemporary it was. It certainly inspired my work..."
