About Women: Photographs by Dorothy Bohm
‘About Women’ is Dorothy Bohm’s first book to focus exclusively on the subject of women. Taken throughout the world, from the late 1940s until the present day, her photographs range from images of ordinary women going about their everyday activities, to explorations of the role that representations of women, in the form of advertisements, posters and mannequins, play in contemporary westernised society. The photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, are complemented by an insightful foreword by novelist Marika Cobbold and an informative essay, based on conversations with Dorothy Bohm, by photography curator and historian Amanda Hopkinson. 152pp.
