Documentary of photojournalist Jane Bown – LOOKING FOR LIGHT – JANE BOWN

Looking for LightLOOKING FOR LIGHT – JANE BOWN (E) 2014 DODD, L/WHYTE, M £17.99

Documentary about British photographer Jane Bown. Bown began working as a photojournalist for The Observer newspaper in 1949 and has since taken portraits of countless well-known subjects including Bertrand Russell, Margaret Thatcher, Queen Elizabeth II, Björk and Mick Jagger. Despite her somewhat unusual working methods, such as frequently using only natural light and using a shopping bag as a camera case, she managed to succeed in a male-dominated world.

The film takes a look at her career and features contributions from the woman herself as well as photographers Rankin, Nobby Clark and Don McCullin.
