Featuring 200 black-and-white and colour images, this book includes her iconic portraits and extensive photojournalism from the Greenham Common evictions to the Iranian embassy siege. Bown’s pictures allow us to walk back in time as she captured – with curiosity, respect and wit – the people of the UK: you’ll find heroic strikers, soulful miners, proud dogwalkers, busy fishermen, dancing girls, picnicking postmen and excited daytrippers side by side with the Queen, Mick Jagger, Charlie Chaplain, Margot Fonteyn, Sinéad O’Connor, the Beatles and Spike Lee. This definitive collection not only presents Jane’s well-known shots, it includes substantial material that has never been seen before.
This book presents the most comprehensive collection of the photographer’s work – created during the 1940s through the 2010s. The book will be edited by friend and curator Luke Dodd.
