Lee Miller by Richard Calvocoressi
Book DescriptionLee Miller is possibly the 20th century's most famous woman photographer. During her extraordinary life, she came into contact with a wide range of people including many of the most celebrated and influential artists, writers, actors, fashion designers and socialites of the last century. The photographs include not only Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Dora Maar, Igor Stravinsky, Henry Moore, Colette, Marlene Dietrich, Fred Astaire and a host of others, but also pictures of unsung individuals engaged in war work. Most memorable of all are Miller's pictures of victims and perpetrators of Nazi oppression - some of the most powerful images from the last century. These brilliant portraits are shown together for the first time. Throughout the book, Richard Calvocoressi demonstrates the originality and artistry of Miller's work, while exploring the relationship between the photographs and her fascinating life.
