More than 75 years ago Lee Miller accompanied the American troops as a war photographer on behalf of Vogue as they marched from Normandy via Paris, Alsace, the Rhineland, Hesse and Thuringia to the Elbe in Torgau (and then to Bavaria). The exhibition shows a selection of over one hundred photographs capturing scenes of the 2nd World War.
