This Women’s History Month, ANOTHER EYE reveals the extraordinary women who escaped Nazi persecution and helped to transform Britain’s photography scene. During the 1930s, more than 70,000 refugees came to Britain from Nazi-dominated Europe. Amongst those escaping anti-Semitic and political persecution were a surprising number of women photographers. Often established practitioners, these women brought fresh, modernist perspectives that opened up British photography in the decades that followed. ANOTHER EYE is the first UK exhibition to showcase this remarkable group of women, exploring both their collective influence and inspiring personal stories. It is an opportunity to see original prints by established photographers, including Dorothy Bohm, Edith Tudor-Hart, Elsbeth Juda and Gerti Deutsch, and to discover new work by lesser-known practitioners like Elisabeth Chat, Laelia Goehr and Erika Koch. Encompassing portraiture, social documentary, reportage, fashion, and advertising, ANOTHER EYE explores how an enterprising group of women refugee photographers played a significant role in representing post-war Britain.
