The collection is particularly strong in Surrealist photographs including works by Lee Miller’s husband Sir Roland Penrose, Man Ray and Jonathan X. Coudrille.
Contemporary photographers include Bob Berry, Susan Boafo, Vince Bevan, Miles Flint, Nick Meek, Steve Tanner and Anthony & Kate Fagin. See also ‘Underwater Photography' for marine photographs by the award winning Mark Webster.
