Additional Information

In this brilliantly composed photograph, a dachshund-type dog lies on the floor next to folded clothes, accessories and a magazine cover. Letters are silhouetted across the dog and the floor – suggesting that perhaps it’s a Parisian shop window that the sleepy canine basks in. Dorothy Bohm made her first visit to Paris in 1947, lived there with her husband from 1954 to 1955, and as this photograph shows, returned many times.

Dorothy Bohm (born 1924) is a London based photographer, working in street photography and portraiture. She lived in Lithuania until the age of 15, when her Jewish-Lithuanian family sent her to England to escape Nazism. She studied photography at Manchester Municipal College of Technology and the City and Guilds of London Art School. After setting up her own portrait studio, she moved onto street photography, with she practised internationally. Now respected as one of the most important figures in British photography, Bohm has said that her chosen medium, the photograph, ‘fulfils my deep need to stop things from disappearing’.
