    Lee Miller – muse and artist

    There’s a great article in the Jan 21 issue of the New Yorker about American photographer, model and all-round amazing person Lee Miller.

    She went from being a model, muse and lover to Man Ray and Picasso to being a great surrealist photographer in her own right, before becoming a photojournalist during the Second World War (she was one of the first photographers into the Nazi death camps after their liberations).

    Hers is a staggering and fascinating life, and an exhibition of her work has just opened at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

    Unfortunately, the New Yorker article’s not available online, but they do have a brief slideshow of her work.
