One day, Mary McCartney was flicking TV channels when she came across an episode of US sitcom Will & Grace. In the show, Will attends a charity auction and gets a portrait session along with a celeb photographer named Fannie Lieber, that is played by Glenn Close.
Forty three year old Mary laughed hard as she recalled the plot of the show. Her approach to clicking snaps is just about as far removed as possible from Fannie Liebers’. She told that she always try to make a connection with the person she is photographing. She added that she does not want to just come away with a shot that she think is interesting.
It is a sensitive and empathetic approach to photography, but this is one which offers some beautiful results. Subjects, mainly celebs, appear to relax when Mary McCartney turns her camera on them. The pictures often feel genuinely spontaneous and intimate, as if we are peering in on an unguarded and private moment. Mary McCartney has choosen around fifty of her favorites for a mid career retrospective – named Developing, which opens this week in Manchester’s Lowry in Salford Quays.
Mary tells that her mom was quite a wanderer. She had a sense of cheekiness and adventure to her that is something she like and that she attempt to take into her style of work. Once she went for an Indian lunch and she grilled her mom about her early career in photography and mainly about the people she was hanging out with.
