RIP Jane Bown

Long time Observer photographer Jane Bown passed away on 21st December 2014. She joined the Observer in 1949 and worked there for more than 50 years. She has taken some of the most iconic portraits, my favourite is her portrait of Samuel Beckett

Here's an interview with her from 2009, I urge you to watch it, there are some great lines in it:

This is the documentary trailer about her, Looking for Light: Jane Bown. Looking forward to watching it. 

RIP Jane Bown, 1925 - 2014.
