DESCRIPTION

Discover a new display of colour photographs by acclaimed photographer Dorothy Bohm, showing the varied lives of London women from the 1990s to the present.

With an aim to capture the many roles of women in society, Bohm juxtaposes the images of women that surround us in advertising, artworks and shop windows with real women living and working in the capital – revealing the contrasts, similarities and gaps between ideals and expectations of the feminine and real life women in everyday situations.
