Lee Miller at Farley Farm

Exhibition on display in the Conference Ante-Room until Dec. 15th 2011.  Open daily from 9:00-17:00.  All are welcome!

After a brief introductory talk by Professor Christian Lloyd last weekend, Lee Miller's incredible life and work will be presented for a limited time in the Conference Ante-Room. 

The photos in Lee Miller at Farley Farm are largely from the post WWII period when Lee settled at Chiddingly, a village about twenty minutes from the castle. Following a career as a Vogue model and artistic collaborator with Man Ray, Miller worked as a combat photographer after D-Day, and was the first to photograph Dachau after liberation of the camp. After the war she suffered from PTSD and alcoholism and moved to Farley Farm to recover. Her many famous friends (including Picasso, Max Ernst, Man Ray) visited her there, and these relationships are documented in the photos in the exhibition. There are also samples of her earlier work as a fashion, landscape, and war photographer.
