A revealing portrait of this most self-effacing photographer emerges through conversation, anecdote and candid reflection. In the almost six decades that Jane Bown (b 1925) worked for the Observer newspaper, she became renowned for insightful, highly individualistic portraits of the famous. Some of these portraits are now regarded as classics of the genre - Samuel Beckett, Queen Elizabeth, the Beatles. This feature documentary is a beautiful portrait of Jane Bown, her quiet determination to succeed in an almost exclusively male world, and her legendary no-nonsense working method. It includes interviews with Rankin, Nobby Clark, Edna O'Brien and Don McCullin and her many iconic photographs of the great and the good of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
