Beautiful, bewitching and an exceptionally good photographer, Lee Miller was one of life’s adventurers.

She became a Vogue cover girl in ‘20s New York before discovering Paris, Man Ray and Surrealism, and then dramatically changed her life yet again, reinventing herself as a US war correspondent.

Lee Miller’s son, Antony Penrose, has intimately recorded her life in this acclaimed biography.

A rich selection of Miller’s own finest work, including portraits of her friends Picasso, Braque, Ernst, Eluard and Miró, complement Penrose’s tribute to a unique talent.
