Lee Miller (1907-1977) is one of the most versatile USA photographers and photo-journalists of the 20th century. She united opposed genres such as surrealism, fashion, portrait and travel photography, as well as war reporting into her repertoire of works.
The exhibition leads through the photographer’s diverse stations of life in New York, from Paris and Egypt up to Germany. Approximately 100 photographs that are exhibited illustrate Lee Miller’s life from different perspectives: as assistant, muse and partner of Man Ray in Paris in the 1930s; and as a pioneer of art photography and a photo-journalist during the Second World War. Her photographs of Germany’s national-socialist aerial bombardments of London, the liberation of Paris and the concentration camps in Dachau and Buchenwald are ranked amongst the most haunting war documents of the 20th century.
The catalogue of the exhibition is published by the Hatje Cantz Verlag.
