Grace Robertson

I’ve been away and somehow missed this piece in the Telegraph about one of my favourite and ridiculously under-rated photographers, Grace Robertson. I’ve always admired her understated and subtle work – especially Mother’s Day Off – first for Picture Post and then Life. Apparently, she was forced, for a time in such a male profession, to work under a pseudonym – Dick Muir – and I saw her work sometimes printed as a young photographer at Bert Hardy’s old darkroom in Waterloo. Wonderful, elegant pictures.
