A Celebration of Sight opens next week at the Oxo Tower Gallery, London SE1, in support of Sight Savers International. The show features a star-spangled line up of artists – both photographers and non-photographers – including Tracey Emin, Mario Testino, Nick Knight, Paul Smith, Betty Jackson and Sam Taylor-Wood. Pictured above is a shot by Linda McCartney, mother of show curator Mary McCartney Donald. ‘Mum took this photograph when she was driving through California in 1975. It encompasses her ability to recognise and capture a fleeting moment,’ she says. A Celebration of Sight runs from 18 March-4 April.
