A Life in Black and White - sixty years of portraits for The Observer
This exhibition by one of Britain’s best-loved photographers includes previously unseen portraits of Lauren Bacall, Cecil Beaton, John Betjeman, Robert de Niro, Holly Hunter, Mick Jagger, Jayne Mansfield, Rudolph Nureyev and many more.
Jane Bown’s first photograph for The Observer was published in 1949, beginning a career with the newspaper that has spanned six decades. Photographing almost exclusively in black and white and in natural light, she is known for working quickly and unobtrusively, with an unerring instinct for capturing the perfect moment even in the midst of a media scrum.
