Five Facets of Photography: Ideas that Changed Photography – Doreen Spooner

George Bernard Shaw, Doreen Spooner, 1949

Doreen Spooner (1928-2019) was the first woman to work as a staff photographer on a Fleet Street newspaper during a forty-year career, mostly on the Daily Mirror. Spooner’s photograph of George Bernard Shaw won the British News Picture of the Year award 1950.  Her first front page scoop came in the summer of 1963 when, in a shadowy London pub, she photographed Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies, the two women at the heart of the Profumo Affair.
