Post-D-Day photo exhibit at the Chandler Museum


Equipped with an M1 Carbine rifle and a speed graphics camera, Pfc. Leander Zwick Jr. stepped onto the shores of Normandy and encountered the Allies’ bloodiest day of World War II.

Zwick and the 165th Signal Photographic Company were embedded in the US Army’s VII Corps and documented the front-line actions of the Battle of Cherbourg.

Soon to be exhibited at the Chandler Museum “After OVERLORD – The WWII Combat Photography of Leander P. Zwick Jr.” Features a collection of Zwick’s aerial photographs of the war-torn Cotenin Peninsula after the D-Day invasion, also known as Operation Overlord.

Filmed in striking detail, his images capture the tragedy and triumph of a conflict that changed the world.

The exhibit will commemorate the anniversary of D-Day on June 6 and will be on view until July 14. This exhibit is a program of Museum Pros, LLC.

The Chandler Museum is located at 300 S. Chandler Village Drive, next to the Fashion Center mall. It is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 to 17:00; Sunday from 13:00 to 17:00 and closed on Monday. Admission is free.
