Join Luke Dodd for an illustrated talk on the life and work of Jane Bown, the legendary photographer who worked at the Observer for six decades. Jane worked in all areas of photojournalism but is best known for her portraits. Many of these have assumed an iconic status: the Queen, Samuel Beckett, Bjork, John Betjeman and Jean Cocteau – to name but a few.
Luke Dodd is a freelance curator and editor. Recent projects include an exhibition of photographs of the 1916 Easter Rising at the Photographers’ Gallery London; Editor of Jane Bown: A Lifetime of Looking (Guardian/Faber) 2015.
