[Exhibition] Women in Focus: Photographs by Dorothy Bohm

  • Feb 17, 2013 · 2:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

 

This Sunday will be the last day of this exhibition at the Museum of London. Join us in viewing it before it's gone!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description by the Museum of London:

 

Discover a new display of colour photographs by acclaimed photographer Dorothy Bohm, showing the varied lives of London women from the 1990s to the present.

An image of a torn poster, showing a woman and a man.

 

With an aim to capture the many roles of women in society, Bohm juxtaposes the images of women that surround us in advertising, artworks and shop windows with real women living and working in the capital – revealing the contrasts, similarities and gaps between ideals and expectations of the feminine and real life women in everyday situations.

Women in Focus is FREE to visit.

Time Out says:

 

Photographer Dorothy Bohm has been taking humanist photos for more than 70 years, with the last 20 spent documenting women in all walks of society across London. This exhibition presents some 30 of these real-world subjects alongside representations of women in art and advertising, offering a searching look at the depiction of modern-day women in culture and commerce.
