Photos by Linda McCartney Capture the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Twiggy, and More

Her portrait of Eric Clapton would land her the cover of the May 11th, 1968 edition of Rolling Stone, making her the first female photographer to hold that honor. And as the years passed, numerous other legends would be the subject of brilliantly done photographs by Linda McCartney. The Beatles were of course a favorite subject, along with their fellow musicians Jimi Hendrix, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, and Janis Joplin.

These photos and more — 200,000 more, to be exact — were painstakingly sorted through for inclusion in the 288 page retrospective Linda McCartney: Life in Photographs. The shots range from candid photos with family friends (who just happen to music legends) to studio sessions with music giants such as Michael Jackson. Below are just a small selection of pictures from the collection, if you’d like to see the full compilation the hardcover edition is available on Amazon.
