Jane Bown: The Observer

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

‘Jane Bown: The Observer’ was a retrospective exhibition that displayed the works of esteemed photographer Jane Bown. Working within a male dominated industry, this significant 20th Century photojournalist captured eminent portraits of post-war Britain on assignments for The Observer from 1949; a career that spanned six decades and documented the austerity of the 1950s through to the rise of modern celebrity-culture. Bown has been frequently positioned amongst the ranks of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank for her candid style and engagement with the ‘decisive moment’. The collection highlights Bown’s documentary and portraiture work, exploring quintessential Britain and its defining figures through evocative black and white film photography.
