I've been struck when watching "Top Gear" how parochial every nation's sense of celebrity can be—I recognize only a few of the guests. I'm sure if I lived in Britain I wouldn't have escaped the knowledge that Linda Eastman McCartney's daughter is also a photographer; but I didn't know. And she's a good one, albeit quite different from her famous mum. (That's correct, isn't it? "Mum" means mom in English? I kid.) What can I say? The reach of my knowledge is nothing when pitted against the extent of my ignorance.
Here's her website.
(Thanks to the several readers who clued me in)

Featured Comment by Iain: "Reminds me of Rosemarie Laing's 'Flight Research' series, circa 1999. Some examples here."
Featured Comment by John Wilson: "There's a show of her work at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London. This coincides with the release of her book From Where I Stand. (U.S. link) Anybody tempted to pop in to see her work should also climb the second set of stairs and see Robert Bergman's stunning portraits.
"Jim is right; her sister Stella is far better known in the U.K. I think the only U.K. fashion photographer with any sort of recognition by the general public here is Rankin."
