Seeing Daylight: The Photography of Dorothy Bohm


Dorothy Bohm has been photographing for over 70 years. When fleeing the rise of Nazism aged 13 she was given a camera by her father as a parting gift; she wouldn’t see her father for another two decades. Since then she has become one of Britain’s most eminent photographers. Seeing Daylight is a 2017 documentary, directed by Richard Shaw, about her practice, how she learned photography, what drives her to photograph and how her images changed photography.

Screening includes a private viewing of the exhibition Little Happenings: photographs of Children by Dorothy Bohm, which closes on 17 March, and a Q&A with Dorothy’s daughter Monica Bohm-Duchen.
