Looking For Light: Jane Bown

Her life through the lens

A moving portrait of the photographer Jane Bown: her quiet determination working in an almost exclusively male world, her unique working method and how the sorrow of her early childhood informed her unique photographic style. She worked for the Observer for 65 years making unforgettable images of hundreds of subjects including Samuel Beckett, Mick Jagger, Queen Elizabeth II and Bjork, to mention a few. Using basic equipment and often relying on available light, she honed a deceptively simple technique to produce her highly distinctive and indeed iconic photographs.
