Samuel Beckett, 1976

I’m somewhat ashamed to say that I had never heard of Jane Brown until I read some of the numerous obituaries, this one from “The Guardian”, the newspaper for which she worked for many years.

Throughout her long career as an Observer photographer, Jane Bown, who has died aged 89, produced a consistent and singular body of work that straddled many areas of photojournalism. However, she will be remembered above all for her deeply insightful portraits.
