Poppies: Women and War

Museum of Liverpool


24 July 2015 to February 2016


Free entry


Poppies: Women and War is an exhibition by photographer Lee Karen Stow,  remembering women in times of war from the First World War to the present day.


It combines a portrait series of women whose lives have been affected by war, with a botanical series of the poppy flower in its national environment.

Despite its delicate appearance, the poppy is able to generate new life when everything else has been destroyed, and the exhibition includes not only red but orange, yellow, pink, burgundy and the rare white poppy, to represent women worldwide caught up in war.
