Dorothy Bohm @ The Jewish Museum
28 April 2016 - 29 August 2016
Explore the streets of 1960s London through the lens of eminent photographer Dorothy Bohm. Step back in time and discover the diversity of life in London in the 1960s with photographs focusing on its inhabitants from all walks of life, from schoolchildren to fashion-conscious young adults to market traders. Born in East Prussia in 1924, Dorothy Bohm moved to Lithuania in 1932 with her family to escape the threat of Nazism. Bohm was sent by her parents to safety in Britain in 1939, armed with a Leica camera handed to her by her father at the very last moment. London has been her home since the 1950s.
