London’s Women (26 November 2012)

Acclaimed photographer Dorothy Bohm is behind a new exhibition at the Museum of London.

Born in East Prussia in 1924, Bohm moved to London in 1956 and has been documenting the capital ever since. Women in Focus captures the varied lives of women in London from the 1990s to the present day, juxtaposing everyday lives with feminine ideals and expectations. There are 33 photographs on display, many of them for the first time. Dorothy will also be discussing her life and work at a museum event on 26 November.
