Dorothy Bohm is widely considered one of the doyennes of British photography. To date, however, there has not been a major retrospective of her career and oeuvre, which span six decades (from the 1940s to the present day) and several continents. This situation is to be changed by an exhibition of some 250 of her photographs at Manchester Art Gallery in 2010. The accompanying book, the most detailed and comprehensive to date, is also the first publication of its kind. Lavishly illustrated with numerous full-page reproductions of the photographs displayed at the exhibition, as well as others not exhibited, the book contains three substantial essays, which cover Bohm's life, her work within the history of photography and visual culture, and her status as a female photographer. The work concludes with an extensive and easy-to-use index of thumbnail reproductions of her work.
