Jane Bown, A Lifetime of Looking

Jane Bown (1925-2014) was very much more than a portrait photographer. She had a declared passion for photojournalism of which her portraits were only part. Jane Bown, A Lifetime of Looking shows some of that work alongside her better known portraits.

Exposures by Jane Bown, book review

Having a simple and reliable technique enabled Jane Bown to concentrate on the image and she built a reputation for being tenacious in getting the right shot. However she always shot economically and rarely used more than two films (72 frames) on any particular job.
