Exposures: Jane Bown exhibition of 50 seminal portraits is now open at the TopFoto Gallery in Edenbridge, Kent, from Samuel Beckett, Bjork and The Beatles, to Mick Jagger, Margaret Thatcher, and Queen Elizabeth II. In a hyped-up, over-polished world, Jane Brown’s breathtaking revelation of character and use of only natural light stands alone. She is a national treasure and as Lord Snowdon put it: “one of the great recorders of our time, a kind of English Cartier-Bresson”.
