Gemma Levine was born in London in 1939, beginning a career as a photographer in 1975. Over three decades she published 20 books of photographs and created more than 60 exhibitions across the world. Best known for her striking black and white photography, Gemma has photographed hundreds of high-profile contemporary figures, including six Prime Ministers, members of the Royal family, and famous actors. In 2001 she celebrated 25 years of her work with an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.
In 2012 Quartet Books published Gemma’s memoir, ‘Go With The Flow’, which charted her journey through treatment for cancer. We are delighted to host the launch of her latest book, ‘Just One More… a Photographer’s Memoir,’ comprising snapshots of her professional life. These extracts from her diary are accompanied by photographs, letters or poems, and provide an unrivalled insight into the working life of a photographer.
Join us at 6pm on Friday 9 May to celebrate the launch of Gemma Levine’s latest book, and hear behind-the-scenes from the woman who has photographed Dame Judi Dench and Princess Diana among many more public figures. The evening will be in aid of ‘Hope For Tomorrow’, a charity run by Christine Mills MBE who invented the chemo van.
