DESCRIPTION / BIOGRAPHY
Born into a Jewish Lithuanian family in Koenigsberg, East Prussia, Dorothy Bohm was sent to England in 1939 to escape Nazism.

Bohm has spent her lifetime taking photographs and travelling the World. Bohm's fascination with people is evident in her work.

Bohm is driven by a desire to capture the transient moments of life. She is based in London, and is known for her portraiture, street photography, early adoption of colour, and photography of London and Paris.

She was the associate director of the Photographers' Gallery when it opened in 1971.

"I have spent my lifetime taking photographs. The photograph fulfils my deep need to stop things from disappearing. It makes transience less painful and retains some of the special magic, which I have looked for and found. I have tried to create order out of chaos, to find stability in flux and beauty in the most unlikely places." Dorothy Bohm
