LONDON.- From Where I Stand is the first solo display of work by photographer Mary McCartney at the National Portrait Gallery. The display celebrates the publication of McCartney's first book, From Where I Stand, selected from her complete archive from the 1990s to the present.

The display of 12 portraits will include portraits of well-known British figures from the worlds of art, film, fashion and music alongside portraits of McCartney's family. Photographs of PJ Harvey and British film directors from the Gallery's Collection will be on show besides portraits of Helen Mirren, Gwyneth Paltrow as Madonna, Sam Taylor-Wood and the Chapman Brothers, Tracey Emin as Frida Kahlo, Vivienne Westwood and Lily Cole amongst others. In an insight to Mary's world, both public and private, intimate portraits of Stella and Linda McCartney will also be exhibited.

Mary McCartney was born in London in 1969 and started her career as a professional photographer in 1994. She has been commissioned for numerous publications including Harper's Bazaar and Interview magazine. Her first solo exhibition Off Pointe - A Photographic Study of the Royal Ballet After Hours was shown at the Royal Opera House in 2004 before touring to Dimbola Lodge, Isle of Wight, and Crane Kalman Gallery, Brighton. Other solo exhibitions of her work have been held at OXO Tower, London, Goss-Michael Foundation, Texas, and Nunnington Hall, Yorkshire, while British Style Observed was exhibited as part of 30 days of Fashion at the Natural History Museum in 2008. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at the Royal College of Art, London, The Waterfront, New York and Plymouth Arts Studio. McCartney completed a special commission for the exhibition Gay Icons in 2009 and these works, including portraits of Ian McKellen and Sandi Toksvig, are now part of the Collection at the National Portrait Gallery.
