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).
