Exhibition

The War at Home

4 April to 21 July 2024 at Farleys House and Gallery, East Sussex, England

An exhibition from the Lee Miller Archives that shows us, through Miller’s innovative lens, the varied ways in which Britain survived and overcame another world war, in spite of the Blitz, rationing and incredible hardships. Lee’s diverse images portray the story of a nation’s ingenuity, hard work, play, adaptability and, despite the destruction and loss caused by war, its communal, defiantly optimistic striving for endurance and beauty.

Between the winter of 1939 and summer of 1944, Miller was engaged in numerous assignments for British Vogue, becoming one of the magazine’s most significant photographers on home soil.
