"Dorothy Bohm: Sixties London" on view at Jewish Museum London
Church Street market, Marylebone.


LONDON.- Explore the streets of 1960s London through the eyes of eminent photographer Dorothy Bohm.

Pictures on display reflect the diversity of life in London in the 1960s, focusing on its inhabitants from all walks of life, from schoolchildren to fashion-conscious young adults to market traders.

Born in East Prussia in 1924, Dorothy Bohm moved to Lithuania in 1932 with her family to escape the threat of Nazism. Eventually Bohm was sent by her parents to safety in Britain in 1939, armed with a Leica camera handed to her by her father at the very last moment. London has been her home since the 1950s.

Dorothy Bohm has worked as a photographer all around the world, capturing ordinary lives from Europe to the Americas to the Far East. She was closely involved in the founding of the Photographers’ Gallery in London in 1971 and was its Associate Director for fifteen years. Bohm was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 2009.

Related events include curator talks from Joanne Rosenthal on the first Wednesday of every month.

Abigail Morris, Director of the Jewish Museum London said: “Dorothy has had the most remarkable career, spanning seven decades. Her images of 1960s London show a living city, and reveal her special interest in people. We are delighted to celebrate her work, and her contribution to British photography, with this exhibition.”
