From The Blairs at Number 10 to Mel C: Talking to Mary McCartney about her new book: Monochrome/Colour | LOVE
As she launches her new book Monochrome/Colour with a talk alongside John Cooper Clarke at the Society Club Soho, Harriet Verney catches up with famed and adored photographer Mary McCartney about the photographic diary.A quick and lazy google will tell you Mary McCartney has photographed everyone from the Blairs at Downing Street (she actually forgot her tripod when she shot them) to Spice Girl Mel C. An eclectic mix. In the loo at Mary’s west London studio, there hangs her portrait she took last year of The Queen; poised, earnest and well, the queen—it sits brilliantly above the bog. The only other picture in the bathroom is of two leathered and wrinkled sun worshipers on their sunbeds in Venice. Him reclining with his jazzy rainbow swimming trunks on and she completely covered up bar her face. She really has photographed them all.
