    Full Description

    Lee Miller (1907-1977) had many lives: she was a model, muse, photographer, war correspondent and Surrealist chef. It is well known that she was ‘discovered’ on the street at nineteen and that her face appeared on the cover of Vogue a few months later, that she inspired numerous famous illustrators, photographers and artists, and that she flouted convention by picking up a camera and making a name for herself with seductive fashion photos, Surrealist experiments and penetrating war reports. Through this publication, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen reveals the less-well-known fact that, during her lifetime, Miller’s impressive oeuvre was mainly accessible in magazines. Curator Saskia van Kampen-Prein traces Miller’s life and work through the pages of popular lifestyle magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar and avant-garde Surrealist periodicals. Through these magazines, Miller helped to shape the modern world and was her whole life ‘in print’.

    Featured essays include Antony Penrose, Ami Bouhassane, Madelief Hohé, Hripsimé Visser, Julie Summers, Robin Muir, Lisa Hostetler, Hilary Roberts.
