Lakeside is the University of Nottingham’s unique public arts facility based in the family-friendly surroundings of Highfields Park.

Lee Miller's War

A remarkable female icon of the 20th century, best known as a model and Surrealist photographer, this exhibition focuses on one of the least recognised aspects of Lee Miller's life - her years as a photojournalist during World War II. Working as a freelance photographer for Vogue, in 1944 Lee Miller became accredited as a war correspondent with the US Army. She was the only woman in combat photojournalism in Europe during World War II and witnessed the liberation of Paris and the Russian/American link up in Torgau. She was also one of the first to arrive at the Buchenwald and Dachau concentration camps.

Lee Miller's photographs function not only as historical records but also as powerful images in their own right that sear unforgettably into the memory.

Fellow photographer David E Scherman said "Lee Miller was never afraid of what the evil men do", and perhaps it was this that allowed her to keep on photographing, despite witnessing some of mankind's worst acts of inhumanity.
