Published to coincide with the UK release in November 2023 of the film Lee, starring Kate Winslet as Lee Miller, a biography described by the Sunday Times as 'a fascinating revelation of an adventurous and protean spirit.'

Lee Miller, 1927 - New York: A classically beautiful young woman, she is discovered by Condé Nast, hits the cover of Vogue and is immortalized by Steichen, Hoyningen-Huene, Horst and other famous photographers.

Lee Miller, 1929 - Paris: Protégé and lover of Man Ray, she invents with him the solarization technique of photography, develops into a brilliant Surrealist photographer, and plays the statue in Cocteau's film Blood of a Poet.

Lee Miller, 1939-45 - Europe: Living at times with her future husband, the painter Roland Penrose, she becomes a US war correspondent and covers the siege of St Malo and the liberation of Paris. Her photographs of 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. Featuring a selection of her finest work, including portraits of her friends Picasso, Ernst and Miró, Penrose’s tribute to his mother brings to life a uniquely talented woman and the turbulent times in which she lived.
