Linda McCartney worked as a professional photographer from the mid-1960s and was married to the former Beatle from 1969 until her death from breast cancer in 1998.

The V&A's senior curator of photographs, Martin Barnes, said Thursday that Linda McCartney was "interested in unguarded moments and intimate moments, unstaged moments," whether taking pictures of her family or of celebrities.
