Dorothy Bohm: Breaks in Communication
Edited by Martin Harrison.

Essays by Mark Haworth-Booth and Martin Harrison.

In the 1980s Andre Kertesz encouraged Dorothy Bohm to switch to color film. Immediately thereafter, torn advertising posters, graffiti, and vernacular murals began to emerge as one of the persistent themes in her work. If their initial appeal for her was their seductive visuality, their deeper significance arguably stems from her history as a Lithuanian refugee who lost touch with most of her family when she immigrated there as a teenager in 1939. A sense of loss is acute and ever-present in her compelling images of witty and melancholic transient worlds.

A doyenne of British photography, Dorothy Bohm was born in 1924 in Konigsberg and has been taking pictures for over So years. Since 1970, ten books have been published on her photographic work. Bohm lives and works in London.
