Lee Miller

Model, muse, Surrealist and war photographer—Lee Miller was a complex artist and a daring human being. Born in Poughkeepsie, New York in 1907, she moved to Paris in 1929 to study and eventually collaborate closely with Man Ray, who became her lover. She went on to fearlessly document the front rank of the Allied liberation of Europe during World War II; some of her most famous images capture the suicides of high-ranking Nazi officials, beaten SS prison guards, piles of dead bodies at Buchenwald, and of course, her own self-portrait in Hitler's bathtub. Featured image, "Solarized portrait of an Unknown Woman," made in Paris, while under the tutelage of Ray in 1932, is thought by some to capture Surrealist sculptor Meret Oppenheim.
