Join the opening of the first exhibition in Denmark about the extraordinary life of Elizabeth “Lee” Miller: photographer, model, business woman, gourmet chef, author and war correspondent. A norm-breaking artist in a time of breathtakingly rapid change, something she captured in her photographs: war reports from the Second World War and surrealist compositions which included the changing role of women as a theme. With enormous courage, Miller threw herself into a host of projects – but most of all she was a fantastically good photographer.

At the opening you can meet the two people alive with the most insight into Lee Miller’s life and work: Her granddaughter Ami Bouhassane and her son Antony Penrose, who are Co-Directors of the Lee Miller Archives, will give an introduction to Lee Miller’s intense life in conversation with Charlotte Præstegaard Schwartz, Curator of Photography at the Royal Danish Library, on stage in in the Queen’s Hall.

Subsequently there will be refreshments in the atrium and an opportunity to see the exhibition.

There will also be free access to the permanent photo exhibition ‘The Camera and Us’

Free entrance – Please note the event has limitied capacity
