Hop Pickers at Dawn 1956

This is Hop Pickers at Dawn 1956. Jane Bown was then 31 and by then a superb and unique photographer. As Lord Snowdon said: she was ‘a kind of English Cartier-Bresson’ who produced ‘photography at its best. She doesn’t rely on tricks or gimmicks, just simple, honest recording, but with a shrewd and intellectual eye.’
