Wow. I found a Lee Miller exhibition via the V&A and am completely in awe of her life and photography. Inspiring, indeed.

Elizabeth ‘Lee’ Miller (23 April 1907 – 21 July 1977) was an American photographer. Born in Poughkeepsie, New York State in 1907, she was a successful fashion model in New York City in the 1920s before going to Paris where she became an established fashion and fine art photographer. During the Second World War, she became an acclaimed war correspondent for Vogue magazine covering event such as the London Blitz, the liberation of Paris, and the concentration camps at Buchenwald and Dachau.

View more of her work via Lee Miller Archives, organized by category: Portraits, Romania, Egypt, Fashion, Paris, New York, WWII and more.

    There was a great article on Lee Miller in “Art in America” a few months back. I am assuming it was probably because of the show. I love her work, and her story is so interesting.
