This exhibition tells the story of Surrealism in Britain and shines a light on the little known, but exciting, cultural moment, through Miller’s lens.

The show focuses on the creative collaborations with the artists Miller knew, photographed, and exhibited alongside, during a time when Britain was recognised as a ‘Surrealist centre’

Sculptures, paintings, photographs, collages and works on paper by artists Eileen Agar, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, René Magritte and Henry Moore also feature in the exhibition. Read more here.
