A variant of Lee Miller’s famous ‘Fire Masks’ version published in American Vogue in the 15th July 1941 issue. The whole shoot was based around her home on Downshire Hill Hampstead and the article celebrated the vital contribution of British women on the home front during the blitz stating ‘…In this war against Fire, Gas, and Explosion, every woman – whether she belongs to one of the Women’s Auxiliary Services or not – is a fighter.’

Matted C-type digital print made from digital file sourced from Lee Miller’s original negative.
