About this item

During the summer of 2005 Mike McCartney was present at the main UK venue for the ‘LIVE8’ concert in Hyde Park, London as a guest of his brother Sir Paul McCartney and the show’s organiser and founder Sir Bob Geldof. Throughout the course of the event Mike took a series of private and quite personal photographs of the performers, the celebrities and other activities that took place over the day. They have formed a remarkable, if very intimate, photo diary of the event. Most of Mike’s pictures are unique from the point of view that they were taken from within the ‘golden areas’ – those behind the scenes that were not accessible to the majority of press and official public relations photographers, and certainly no member of the public was able to visit them. In many ways they are an astonishing and unusual ‘unofficial’ record of the day’s activities, particularly considering Mike’s special relationship with so many of the celebrities. He was able through those friendships and close links to photograph them at their ease and in ‘more natural poses’ as they took part in what is regarded as the most astonishing showbiz gathering so far in the 21st Century. His wonderful images have been published in a special ‘one off’ photo-diary book that records and celebrates this particular aspect of LIVE8.

Mike McCartney’s ‘LIVE 8’ is published in a limited edition of 1,000 books. Includes forewords by Paul McCartney, Mike McCartney and Bob Geldof. Hardback, 112 pages. It measures 21cm x 24.5cm (8.25 inches x 9.75 inches). The condition is mint.
