Summary
Lee Miller was a Vogue cover girl, Man Ray's lover, the first photojournalist at the liberation of Dachau and Buchenwald, and one of the most important female photographers of the 20th century. Combining fine art and urban wit, her photographic technique was learned from the great photographers of her day, among them Edward Steichen, Man Ray, and George Hoyningen-Huene. Becky E. Conekin's current work gives us a wide lens view on Miller's life and her work in fashion photography
