Exhibition open to public 11 May – 5 June
Open Tuesday – Saturday 11-6 and Sunday 12-5

The Fitzrovia Chapel is proud to present our exhibition Lee Miller: Nurses held in conjunction with the Lee Miller Archives, and forming part of our ongoing cultural programme relating to the history of the chapel as part of the former Middlesex Hospital.
Lee Miller is an iconic name in the world of photography and art, with a career that spans many realms from modelling to Surrealism to gourmet chef. She is most renowned, however, for her pioneering photography reporting on World War II. Lee Miller: Nurses presents 12 of her images from this period, focussing solely on nurses. We begin with a US army base in Oxford, then move to the front line in France, and then on into Austria and Germany. The images chosen celebrate the essential role of nurses in this period and explore the spectrum of friendship, romance, daily life and tragedy of these women at war.
The exhibition is free and you don’t need a ticket.
The public programme includes talks and tours of the exhibition as well as events that relate to the themes of the exhibition. Please see our events page for details.
