Black and white images of a louche model, pensive ballet dancers and a bed with rumpled sheets are at home on the walls of A Gallery for Fine Photography in New Orleans.
In “From the Print Drawer,” photos by Mary McCartney evoke timelessness and an intimacy enhanced by the 19th-century venue, and vice versa. And that’s the point.
“This show came about specifically for this gallery,” said McCartney. “I edited for New Orleans and the gallery in mind.”
McCartney started shooting with a Leica R, given to her by her mother, photographer Linda McCartney, whose iconic work includes a photo of baby Mary nestled in the fur-lined jacket of her father, Paul McCartney, that was used on the back cover of his solo album, “McCartney.”
Sir Paul McCartney, the former Beatle, performs at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on Thursday night. Daughter Mary will lend a hand with social media.
