From now until October 6, if you’re in Vienna you can check out a beautiful retrospective of photographer Linda McCartney’s work at Kunst Haus Wien.
She may be best known as Sir Paul McCartney’s wife, but Linda McCartney was an artist in her own right, shooting iconic and intimate images of some of music’s biggest stars. Born Linda Eastman, this trailblazing New York-based photographer was the first woman to land a Rolling Stone cover, in 1968 with a portrait of Eric Clapton. McCartney channeled her love of music into pictures, primarily getting involved with the scenes in New York, L.A. and London and capturing the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Aretha Franklin, and Janis Joplin. From now until October 6, if you’re in Vienna you can check out a beautiful retrospective of her work at Kunst Haus Wien, featuring her celeb shots as well as haunting Scottish landscapes and personal photos of her gorgeous family (including shots of Stella McCartney as a baby!). —Ashley Churchill
