Mary McCartney: Paris Nude

Mary McCartney: Paris Nude
Library Shelf Location 18.MCCA
Publication Date 2019

In July 2016, Mary McCartney travelled to Paris for a special photo shoot. Over two days, McCartney would stay with her subject Phyllis Wang at her St Germain apartment and photograph her in the nude. A mixture of black and white and colour, the delicate photographs collected here showcase the intimacy and trust required from both subject and photographer. Over the course of their time together, we see the model increasingly relax in front of the camera as she assumes various poses, and an unspoken bond between the two gradually develops. Moments of humour arise, through Wang's adoption of props, including her collection of hats, and in details that emerge from their candid accounts of the two days - notably an initial misunderstanding about an x-rated shoot - which engagingly annotes the photographs throughout the book.
