"Part memoir, part photo essay, part search for the real woman behind an unconventional mother....Should ensure Miller the place she deserves in future histories of the period."--"Art in America" - Lee Miller: 1927: New York. Classically beautiful, she is discovered by Conde Nast and immortalized by Steichen, Hoyningen-Huene, Horst, and other famous photographers. - Lee Miller: 1929: Paris. Protege and lover of Man Ray, she invents with him the solarization technique of photography and develops into a brilliant Surrealist photographer. - Lee Miller: 1939-1945: Europe. She becomes a U.S. war correspondent and covers the liberation of Paris. Her photographs of the Dachau concentration camp shock the world. These are but three of the many lives of Lee Miller, intimately recorded here by her son, Antony Penrose, whose years of work on her photographic archives unearthed a rich selection of her finest work, including portraits of her friends Picasso, Braque, Ernst, Eluard, and Miro. To these are added many other photos that complement Penrose's highly readable biography of this uniquely talented artist. 171 duotone illustrations.
