Jane Bown has been taking portraits for the Observer for sixty years; anyone who has picked up the paper will be aware of her extraordinary talent. Working almost exclusively in black and white and with natural light, she produces astonishingly candid photographs that reveal the private side of her famous subjects. She works quickly, unobtrusively and decisively, often snatching great pictures in impossible circumstances.
Exposures presents Jane's well-known shots alongside unpublished pictures - the ones that hit the newsroom floor. Presented here uncropped and in their full glory, these photographs show why Jane has been hailed as the natural successor of Cartier-Bresson and as one of the UK's preeminent portrait photographers.
