Proud Chelsea is pleased to announce this stunning exhibition of Sixties London images by celebrated photographer Dorothy Bohm.

Born in central Europe in 1924, and resident in England since 1939, Bohm is one of the most productive, respected and wide-ranging photographers of our time. Closely involved with the founding of The Photographers’ Gallery, London, in 1971 (and its Associate Director for 15 years), she also founded the Focus Gallery for Photography in Bloomsbury in 1998; in 2009 she was elected an Honorary Fellow of The Royal Photographic Society.

In this exhibition – co-curated by the photographer’s daughter Monica Bohm-Duchen, in consultation with Dorothy herself, Bohm casts her inquisitive eye over a London that is both foreign and familiar. With her trusty Rolleiflex camera, she picks out a mismatched troop of besuited bankers, mischievous schoolchildren and attractive yet curiously isolated women against impressive urban landmarks and more intimate backstreets.

Speaking of her decision to photograph London extensively during the 60s, she has said: “Almost every area had its own character and I knew I was undertaking a very difficult task. I tried not to be content with just the facade or outward appearance of things. I hoped to penetrate just beyond that, to portray a living London: the people who pursued their daily occupations, walked, talked, ate or relaxed and dressed in the fashions of the time.”

'Dorothy Bohm: Sixties London' is running until 28 April 2013, at Proud Chelsea, 161 King's Road, London, SW3 5XP. Entry is free. For more information, visit the Proud website.
