Dorothy Bohm (1924 - )

Hampstead Art Exhibition on Heath Street (1971)

This humorous photograph captures the stark generational differences of Hampstead in the early 1970s through the juxtaposition of a young woman, sitting in a folding chair selling ceramic jewellery on the street, and the elderly woman sitting on the bench next to her, looking at the woman disdainfully. The photograph proves Bohm's ability to create a story with her images, as well as demonstrating the deep empathy she feels for her subjects.
