520 8  In 1903 a self-taught novice photographer, Christina Broom,
       turned to photography as a business venture to support her
       family; from this modest beginning she was to emerge as 
       Britain s acknowledged pioneer woman press photographer. 
       Unconventionally for women photographers of the time she 
       took her camera to the streets and recorded arresting and 
       historically important images of Suffragettes, sporting 
       events, royal occasions and World War I soldiers and 
       developed a significant enterprise in picture postcards 
       which she published from her home in Fulham, London, till 
       her death in 1939. Despite her camera s presence at many 
       significant historical events and her importance to press 
       photography her achievements have, to date, been 
       underappreciated; this, the first publication on her life 
       and work redresses the neglect and also illuminates the 
       vital role of her dedicated assistant and daughter, 
       Winifred, without whom Broom s substantial contribution to
       photography might have been lost.0The book showcases Broom
       s remarkable work celebrating her personal journey, 
       approach and skill through many rich photographs, drawn 
       from the Museum of London s fine collection of her plate 
       glass negatives and prints which reflect her visual style 
       and spectrum of subjects. Essays from four women who have 
       engaged closely with her work for several years explore 
       and contextualise her imagery and reveal the compelling 
       story of the women behind the lens. Exhibition: Museum of 
       London Docklands, London, UK (19.06-01.11.2015).
