For two decades, McCartney has explored the female gaze and abroad range of subjects, examining nuanced aspects of identity, vulnerability and femininity through her lens. Whether the subjects are world-famous or unknown, familiar to her or not, she has used the camera to gain a deeper understanding of their true selves. Authenticity and truthfulness are key denominators in McCartney’s search of the naturally inspiring and beautiful in humanity and nature, using the camera to develop and discover the world.
