92-year-old photography doyenne found her focus in fleeing the Nazis
After escaping to Britain alone at age 14, Dorothy Bohm went on to become one of the most acclaimed artists of her generation
LONDON — In a remarkable career spanning over seven decades, renowned British photographer Dorothy Bohm’s motivation to capture a person, place, or moment has remained unchanged.
“A photograph fulfills my deep need to stop things from disappearing,” the 92 year old told The Times of Israel in a recent interview. “There are times that I love something and I want to keep it,” she explains, revealing a slight accent — a holdover from childhood years lived in Prussia and Lithuania.
