Photographer Dorothy Bohm, who co-founded the Photographers' Gallery and is considered one of the doyennes of British photography, has focused her work, over the past 20 years, on the role of women in society.
The exhibition, Women in Focus: Photographs, will go on show at the Museum of London on 16 November. The photographs strive to highlight the multiple facets of women's lives, including the contrast between their roles as mothers and professionals.
Bohm also wanted her work to reflect how women are perceived in public places such as shops, cafés and the streets of London, and the contrast between the expectations of female roles and the reality of everyday situations.
The exhibition will be the first time the 33 images will be shown publicly.
Dorothy Bohm will also be holding a talk at the Museum of London on 26 November from 7pm.
