Looking for Light

Looking for Light

Synopsis

A moving portrait of the photographer Jane Bown: her quiet determination working in an almost exclusively male world; her unique working method; how the sorrow of her early childhood informed her unique photographic style. It includes interviews with Rankin, Edna O’Brien and Don McCullin as well as the many iconic photographs by Jane that span her six decade career including her portraits of Samuel Beckett, Mick Jagger, Queen Elizabeth II and Bjork, to mention a few.
