Whilst recording WWII events she was also photographing and writing about aspects of women’s roles during the war; wartime fashion, the work of the WRENS, ATS, Land Girls, nurses, refugees in Europe, concentration camp victims, women accused of collaboration and those forced into slave labour.
Her story and that of the women she encountered is told live on Zoom through her own images which are presented by her son, Antony Penrose, while her written word is spoken by her granddaughter. Afterwards there will be a Q&A with Antony and Ami.

Lee Miller’s Britain at War, an exhibition from the Lee Miller Archives, along with the launch of our brand new publication; ‘Grim Glory. Lee Miller’s Britain at War.’
