Antony Penrose takes a behind the scenes look at the creation of the Lee Miller Archive which houses more than 60,000 negatives of Lee Miller’s work, 20,000 vintage prints plus manuscripts. We see how Lee Miller’s family conserve and disseminate her work and that of Roland Penrose and their collection at Farley Farm House which has become a museum from which the archive produces a constant stream of books, films and exhibitions. This story is an attestation to the 35 years of close collaboration with The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
