Museum Visit - Imperial War Museum


A grand building, a beautiful park and interesting exhibits. The Imperial War Museum has much to offer.  My visit was to see the exhibition "Lee Miller: A Woman's War".  A selection of photographs that document Miller's life from model to reporter for Vogue magazine in the early part of her career, and then war correspondent.   She became a reputable war photographer, one of the first women to bring back images from the war zones.

Many of the images in the exhibition are from the Lee Miller archives set up by her son Anthony Penrose following her death in 1977.   A fascinating life of an extraordinary woman.

The exhibition runs until April 2016.

Hope it was better than the one I went to see at the British museum the other week. I felt really ripped off. Must admit I have wanted to go back to the war museum for a long time. Last time I visited was with my dad and I was about 15

IWM London really is an amazing place - though I haven't been since the recent refurbishment.
