About

After fleeing to England as a child at the outset of the Second World War, photographer Dorothy Bohm studied photography at a Manchester college before moving to Hampstead in 1956. Over the next three decades she built a reputation as one of Britain’s leading photographic artists, earning particular acclaim for her images of street culture in London and Paris.

TateShots met her at her home to find out what photography has meant in her life. Bohm is one of the photographers featured in an exhibition at Tate Britain this summer, that explores how some of the biggest names in international photography have portrayed London and its communities over the years.
