Linda McCartney's last photography book, Light from Within, contains more than 100 previously unpublished black and white and color images, including many pictures of Sir Paul and the McCartney children. The title of the book comes from a song Linda wrote called, The Light Comes from Within. In the forward to the book, Sir Paul writes:"The words were obviously close to her heart. It is particularly appropriate that she should use the word light because of her long-time interest in it, starting with her passion for photography in the sixties.
"Light was obviously something she studied , and drawing on her vast pool of natural instincts, she instantly recognized a situation where the light was perfect for a photograph. She very rarely used a light meter and was able to judge the scene merely by looking at it. Sometimes she was so sure that she would only take one photo - unlike many of her contemporaries who would bang off a whole roll to cover themselves.
"This book of her photography, which has been put together so lovingly by our daughter Mary and Martin Harrison, with some small assistance from myself, shows what a keen eye she had for the world about her."
