Abstract:

Second title and monograph in this series, the first volume being dedicated to another great female photographer of our century: Dora Maar. Lee Miller narrates the story of a charismatic female figure and a dedicated and courageous artist. With its very beautiful photos, this book takes the reader through a journey into the various stages of Miller’s career and the numerous events that occurred over the last fifty years. For Vogue, Miller, a photographer with a surrealist background, snapped portraits and created features on fashion. But she is especially remembered as a photojournalist and war correspondent in Europe, leaving behind some of the most powerful images of the 20th century.
