Lee Miller: A Woman’s War (until 24 April 2016) is the new exhibition of 150 photographs depicting women’s experience of the Second World War by acclaimed photographer Lee Miller. This major retrospective traces Miller’s remarkable career as a photographer for Vogue Magazine and for the first time addresses her vision of gender. Recognised today as one of the most important female war photographers of the twentieth century, through her work Miller offers an intriguing insight into the impact of conflict on women’s lives, detailing their diverse experiences and her own world view.
