This exhibition at the National Archives, Kew, Surrey reveals a little-known side of his work. In 1944, the Ministry of Information sent him to India to photograph day-to-day life and add glamour to its propaganda campaign about the war in south-east Asia.
Original correspondence, documents and propaganda posters are included.
Free admission. An accompanying lecture, "Images of India", will be given on February 19 at 7.30pm.
Tickets: pound;4-pound;5. Tel: 020 8392 52025323Email: events@national archives.gov.uk; www.national archives.gov.uk
