Reimagining the Image: Mary McCartney in Conversation with Mark Lubell

Date Sep 25, 2018
Type Interview

Join us for a lecture and book signing with Mary McCartney, an acclaimed British photographer whose work focuses on intimate portraiture and candid reportage. McCartney will be in discussion with ICP Executive Director Mark Lubell to discuss the arc of her career, focusing on series such as Off Pointe, which captures unexpected, contradictory moments backstage with the Royal Opera House’s Corps de Ballet, as well as her latest book project, The White Horse.


Mary McCartney is an acclaimed British photographer whose work focuses on intimate portraiture and candid reportage. Her work has been shown in numerous exhibitions, including British Style Observed (National History Museum, London, 2008); From Where I Stand (National Portrait Gallery, London, 2010); and Mother Daughter (Gagosian, 2015), a collection of photographs exploring her relationship with her mother, Linda McCartney.

Mark Lubell joined the International Center of Photography as executive director in November 2013. He was previously director of Magnum Photos (2004–2011). He spearheaded the restructuring of Magnum, whose history is closely tied with the foundation of ICP, steering it into the 21st century and introducing new revenue streams in tune with today’s online marketplace. In 2007, American Photo named Lubell “Innovator of the Year” for his pioneering approach to multimedia and online communities.

Beginning in 2008, he led “Access to Life,” a project in which eight Magnum photographers documented the work of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. It has successfully raised $1 billion to provide anti-retroviral medicines for HIV-positive people around the world.

Prior to his work at Magnum, Lubell was chief operating officer of “Here is New York: A Democracy of Photographs,” which was formed in the aftermath of the events of September 11, 2001. He was also a founding principal of software company Visual Edge Systems, Inc.
