Dorothy Bohm (born Koenigsberg, East Prussia, 1924 and a resident in England since 1939) is widely considered one of the doyennes of British photography. Whilst many books have been published on her work, to date there has not been a major retrospective of her career and work, which span six decades (from the 1940s to the present day) and several continents. This situation is to be changed by a new book, the most detailed and comprehensive to date, which illustrates over 250 of her photographs - both the black and white images Bohm produced until the mid-1980s, and the colour images she has produced since then. The book also contains three substantial essays: Colin Ford's text is largely biographical in emphasis; Ian Jeffrey's positions Dorothy Bohm's work within the history of photography and visual culture; and, Monica Bohm-Duchen's focuses on Dorothy Bohm as a female photographer and on the representation of women in her oeuvre. The work concludes with an easy-to-use index of thumbnail reproductions of her work.
