In an article appearing in today's New York Times magazine, Linda's long-time friend Brian Clarke (you may recall his magnificent glass fleur-de-lis tribute to Linda) reveals that daughter Mary has inherited many of her mother's traits: her desire to keep out of the limelight, her extraordinary sensitivity toward people and animals, and her talent as a photographer.
In the article, Mary talks about how photography created a special bond between she and her mother:
"My mom's work inspired me because we have a similar eye. She'd carry a camera everywhere, taking pictures as a diary. I respected her photography and liked spending
time with her."
Many of us remember Mary's famous first portrait of Prime Minister Tony's Blair's baby, Leo. The photos printed in this NYT magazine article show another view of Mary's work as she gives us a light, intimate, and honest peek into the lives of some of this generation's actors, artists, and musicians (including a charming shot of a giggling Anoushka Shankar, the daughter of Ravi). Look for Mary's next project, a portrait series, in a future issue of the British edition of Marie Claire. M. Hopkins)
