Jane Bown: Observer by Jane Bown
A selection of Jane Bown's best images, edited by her colleague at the Observer, Andrew Billen. From classics such as the cow's eye, which launched her career at Lilliput, and early celebrity portraits, to more recent faces, events and far-away landscapes, this book reveals the honesty of Jane's vision both as a public and a private observer. Her uncluttered approach and firm belief in the use of natural light, coupled with a unique sensitivity towards her subjects has resulted in a lifetime of intuitive and expressive images. From famous faces captured in radiant laughter to scenes as ordinary as a postwoman's picnic, lunch every photograph has an intinacy and compassion.
