Poppies: Women, War, Peace

Poppies: Women, War, Peace


A photographic exhibition at York Army Museum from Saturday October 8 to Saturday December 31, 2016.

Poppies: Women, War, Peace remembers women in times of war from the First World War to the conflicts of today, and also women campaigners for peace. Yorkshire photojournalist Lee Karen Stow tells their stories through a series of intimate portraits, alongside portraits of the poppy flower in its many colours. Poppies is inspired by American woman Moïna Belle Michael and French woman Madame Anna E Guérin who conceived of the red poppy Remembrance symbol almost a century ago. Two forgotten women of war. Lee Karen Stow will run a short photography workshop and afternoon talk at the Museum on November 11, booking essential.
