London - Dora Maar – Tate Modern

Bankside, London SE1 9TG

Wonderful collection of beautiful fashion and advertising photographs spanning Dora’s career. From social documentary images to political and radical expression and all very forward thinking and radical for a woman at this time.

An avid friend and supporter of Pablo Picasso, Dora supported his career, working alongside him as both in partner and political documenter (Guernica 1937) resulting in Picasso painting Dora on many occasions and assisting her with her experimental photographic and printmaking techniques, inspiring to Marr to focus more on painting and poetry in later life.

Dora did eventually return to photography thankfully creating further beautiful and inspiring images well into her later life.

A beautiful exhibition spanning Maar's long and lustrous career, see before it ends on 15th March 2020.
