Described by the Sunday Times as ‘a fascinating revelation of an adventurous and protean spirit’, this new edition is publishing to coincide with the up-coming film Lee, starring Kate Winslet as Lee Miller.

Beautiful, bewitching and an exceptionally good photographer, Lee Miller was one of life’s adventurers.

She became a Vogue cover girl in 1920s New York before embracing Paris, photography and Surrealism, and then dramatically changed her life yet again, reinventing herself as a war correspondent, notably covering the liberation of Dachau.

These are but three of the many lives of Lee Miller, intimately recorded here by her son, Antony Penrose. Featuring a selection of Miller’s finest work, including portraits of her friends Picasso, Tanning and Ernst, Penrose’s tribute to his mother brings to life a uniquely talented woman and the turbulent times in which she lived.
