Lee Miller: A Woman’s War

This is a London Photography Exhibitions post from our archives. Click link to see the latest London Photography Exhibitions.


Lee Miller was one of New York’s top fashion models, working with Edward Steichen amongst other legends of the era. In the 1920s, she left New York for Paris to become an established fine are and fashion photographer. After the breakout of WWII, Lee Miller became an acclaimed War Correspondent for Vogue Magazine. By 1943, she took up an opportunity to work as an accredited photojournalist attached to the American military forces. The exhibition features her work from this time.

When she died in 1977, Lee Miller’s body was cremated and her ashes were spread through her herb garden at Farley Farm House in East Sussex.
‘Lee Miller: A Woman’s War’ is a book published to coincide with the London photography Exhibition, telling the story of the lives’ of women affected by the war.

The Imperial War Museum presents previously unseen images of conflict. The project began several years ago, coming from a conversation with Antony Penrose, Lee Miller’s son. The exhibition puts the Lee Miller’s vision of gender during the conflict centre stage.

“This incredible selection […] cements [Lee Miller’s] position as one of the most important photographers of the 20th century” – Artfund.

The Imperial War Museum is on Lambeth Road, close to Elephant & Castle underground and mainline stations.

Irving Penn: Flowers

This is a London Photography Exhibitions post from our archives. Click link to see the latest London Photography Exhibitions.


Closing soon.
Penn is well known for his fashion work and associations with Vogue and Issey Miyake. Though he is known as a fashion photographer, he was, above all, an artist. Penn pushed the boundaries of art as well as fashion. Irving Penn once said that photographing a cake can be artCoined a king of still-life, Penn turned portraits of inanimate objects into an art-form. The skilful arrangement of the still-life compositions are at once spare and highly organised. From the 1980s, Penn turned more to colour portraits of flowers, than people: he recognised the inevitable process of mortality in the perfect bloom also being in a terminal state decay.

Hamiltons present an exhibition which entwines the beauty of nature with Irving Penn’s photographic genius.

Closing soon.
Where: Hamiltons.
Ends: Saturday, 16th January.

Julia Margaret Cameron

This is a London Photography Exhibitions post from our archives. Click link to see the latest London Photography Exhibitions.


Julia Margaret Cameron, born in Calcutta in 1815, took up photography on receiving a camera as a gift from her daughter and son-in law, Julia and Charles Norman. For the next eleven years, until her death, she exploded creatively, by the coercive force of her eccentric personality, she made portraits, using family members, servants and local residents as models. Of the camera, Julia Margaret Cameron wrote, “and it has become to me as a living thing, with voice and memory and creative vigour.” Though considered to demonstrate sloppy craftsmanship by contemporaries. She ignored the critics and deliberately used a soft focus and long exposures, instilling an uncommon sense of breath and life in her pictures.

The Victoria and Albert Museum presents over 100 images to mark two hundred years since Julia Margaret Cameron’s birth. The exhibition includes some some not seen before work.

The V&A Museum is in South Kensington, on Exhibition Road, a few minutes from South Kensington tube station. You might want to combine the exhibition visit with a trip to the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, which is a short walk from the museum.

Read on for information on the Julia Margaret Cameron: Influence and Intimacy exhibition on the other side of Exhibition Road, at South Kensington’s Science Museum.

Where: Victoria & Albert Museum.
Ends: Sunday, 14th February.
