A retrospective of the late photographer Elsbeth Juda, a Jewish émigré who brought a new modernist artistic vision to Britain from Germany. Although a trailblazing female photographer, Juda's artistic contribution is largely unrecognised today. She disregarded fashion photography’s formal conventions, using unusual, often incongruous backdrops for her shoots.
Known professionally as ‘Jay’, she worked as a commercial photographer for magazines and advertising agencies in a career spanning over 45 years. This exhibition showcases a selection of her output for The Ambassador magazine, featuring glamorous commercial shots and portraits of some of the best know faces in British art and design. Subjects range from Britain’s first supermodel and the Sadler’s Wells Ballet to the likes of Winston Churchill and Henry Moore.
