Lee Miller Summary

Lee Miller: Portraits from a Life by Richard Calvocoressi

Lee Miller is possibly the 20th century's most famous female 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.

Lee Miller Reviews

"'Miller leaves a legacy that is second to none' - The Guardian 'These pictures alternately amuse, thrill and horrify, leaping from the page with all the vigour they must have had when they first appeared... impeccably researched and truly illuminating' - What's On in London 'Superb' - Scotland on Sunday"
