Seeing Daylight – the Photography of Dorothy Bohm: Film Screening and Q&A

An intimate portrait of renowned photographer Dorothy Bohm, who escaped Nazi Europe to spend a lifetime capturing humanity. Still a teenager, Dorothy fled Memel (now Klaipeda), Lithuania on one of the last trains to leave. Her father gave her his camera as a parting gift. She wouldn’t see her parents for another two decades.   

Watch the film online, ahead of a discussion with director Richard Shaw, art historian Monica Bohm-Duchen (daughter of Dorothy Bohm), and photographer Marissa Roth.

The Film Screening Seeing Daylight will be available to view online: 18 – 21 June.
