Featuring 200 black-and-white and colour images, this book includes her iconic portraits and extensive photojournalism from the Greenham Common evictions to the Iranian embassy siege. Bown´s pictures allow us to walk back in time as she captured - with curiosity, respect and wit - the people of the UK: you´ll find heroic strikers, soulful miners, proud dogwalkers, busy fishermen, dancing girls, picnicking postmen and excited daytrippers side by side with the Queen, Mick Jagger, Charlie Chaplain, Margot Fonteyn, Sinéad O´Connor, the Beatles and Spike Lee. This definitive collection not only presents Jane´s well-known shots, it includes substantial material that has never been seen before.
This book presents the most comprehensive collection of the photographer´s work - created during the 1940s through the 2010s. The book will be edited by friend and curator Luke Dodd.
A cloth bound, slipcased limited edition which includes a print of Samuel Beckett is available from The Guardian Bookshop (£150.00)
