Mary McCartney: From the Print Drawer

June 21, 2019


Mary McCartney was born in London in 1969. Her photographs have been focused on discovering those rare moments of unguarded, emotionally charged intimacy that offers us a new insight to the subject. Her work has concentrated on the world of portrait and candid reportage photography and is suffused with a deep personal investment that captures the creative chemistry between Mary and her subjects.
