This special display of photographs by leading London-based photographer Dorothy Bohm explores the universal aspects of childhood.

The exhibition includes a significant number of never-before-seen works revealed to the public for the first time.

Spanning 12 countries over seven decades, the display shows how the idea of childhood and early social interactions have been a source of inspiration for Bohm during her extensive travels throughout her long career.

This will be the first ever exhibit to solely focus on Bohm’s reflections on childhood.

From a young, smiling girl playing in a cardboard box in San Francisco, to Palestinian children playing with Israeli children in Haifa, Israel, to a contemplative photograph of a granddaughter sitting with her grandfather in Greece, Bohm’s work represents hope and a strong belief in humanity.
