Dorothy Bohm: Colour Photographs

9 May - 14 June

Still Life, Hampstead, 1997 © Dorothy Bohm

Avivson Gallery, Highgate

The Avivson Gallery is pleased to announce its next exhibition, a selection of small and exquisite colour prints, many of them images never seen in public before, by doyenne of British photography Dorothy Bohm (née Israelit), who was born in Königsberg, East Prussia in 1924, and sent to the safety of England in 1939, where she has lived ever since.

Intimate in scale and mainly domestic in subject-matter (still lifes predominate), these are lyrical, poetic images that delight the eye. Unlike most of Dorothy’s photographs, they are largely unpeopled, yet even in inanimate objects, a warm human presence is implicit.

Some thirty C-type prints, dating mostly from the 1990s, will be included, alongside a smaller selection of jewel-like polaroid images, which marked Dorothy’s transition from monochrome to colour in the early 1980s.


Open: Wednesday Friday Saturday 12-6 and Thursday 12-8
