Lee Miller exemplified the restlesness of the Lost Generation. She was a stunningly beautiful Vogue model, a fine photographer who studied with and was the lover of Man Ray, a war correspondent, and in later life a gourmet cook. She was married twice: first to an Egyptian businessman and then to British surrealist Roland Penrose. Lavishly illustrated with Miller's own work, Penrose's tribute to his mother brings to life a uniquely talented women and the turbulent times in which she lived. This opulent book, like its subject, is multi-faceted. Penrose has produced a work that is part picture book, part biography, part social history, and successful in all aspects. Highly recommended.

Part memoir, part photo essay, part search for the real woman behind an unconventional mother . . . Should insure Miller the place she deserves in future histories of the period. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.  
Book Description 
Lee Miller: 1927: New York. Classically beautiful, she is discovered by Cond Nast and immortalized by Steichen, Hoyningen-Huene, Horst, and other famous photographers. Lee Miller: 1929: Paris. Protg and lover of Man Ray, she invents with him the solarization technique of photography and develops into a brilliant Surrealist photographer. Lee Miller: 1939-45: 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 have unearthed a rich selection of her finest work, including portraits of her friends Picasso, Braque, Ernst, luard, and Mir. To these are added many other photos that complement Penrose's highly readable biography of this uniquely talented artist. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
