The first museum exhibition to focus on Man Ray's photographic portraits brings together some of his most famous images with the first UK outings for images of Barbette, Catherine Deneuve, Ava Gardner, Lee Miller and Kiki de Montparnasse.

This exhibition brings together some of his most famous portraits of his lover and collaborator Lee Miller. We visited Miller’s home in Sussex, and you can watch her son, Antony Penrose, discuss her complex relationship with Man Ray through personal letters, photographic portraits and even a forgotten suitcase.
