Paul and Linda McCartney

Linda Eastman married Paul McCartney in March 1969. She was a photographer, musician, entrepreneur, and animal rights activist.

Photography made me a different person because it was something I loved doing and just nothing else mattered. I could just take my camera and go, probably like Diane Arbus felt when she was taking pictures. I had that feeling. Even though I had a child I still felt single. It’s different when you’re married and you’ve got to go cook dinner. I could just go, go anywhere.
