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

Lee Miller: 1929: Paris: Protege 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, whose years of work on her photographic archives have unearthed a rich selection of her own finest work, including portraits of her friends Picasso, Braque, Ernst, Eluard, Miro... To these are added many other photographs, perfectly allied to a highly readable biography of this uniquely talented artist.
