Many moons ago I worked at a photo agency in London, known as London Features International. It was and still is an established entertainment photo agency, orginally created in 1971 and produces celebrity images from all over the globe, daily. Well, Mary McCartney was a frequent visitor to our offices, she I believe worked at the time for several magazines as a picture editor and would come in and sort through the images she liked, that was fun, we'd have tea.
I haven't touched base with her for a long time now, must do that but an article in The Telegraph this morning caught my eye. Roya Nikkhah has interviewed Mary and discussed with her her photography, fashion, her late mother and of course Paul. You can read the complete interview here - it's a good read.
