The new exhibition Dorothy Bohm at 100 will be on display at The Photographers' Gallery in London, England, from April 12 - June 23 2024, commemorating what would have been her 100th birthday. 

Bohm was trained as a studio portrait photographer in wartime Manchester before becoming a leading humanist street photographer. This was long before the term 'street photography' was coined and instead, she was observing and capturing life around her.
