THE FIRST FULL-LENGTH BIOGRAPHY OF LEGENDARY PHOTOGRAPHER LEE MILLER _______________________

‘Lee Miller was an astounding woman, brought memorably to life in this astounding book' - Daily Telegraph

‘Does its perplexingly complicated subject more than justice, adding welcome depths and nuances to the familiar legend' - Sunday Times

'A serious and gripping biography from Carolyn Burke' - Boyd Tonkin, Independent _______________________

Lee Miller was one of the most extraordinary photographers of the twentieth century, famous for her portraits and devastating photographs of World War Two, as well as for her legendary beauty.

An art student and a Vogue model, she was a close friend of artists such as Picasso, Cocteau, Max Ernst and Paul Eluard, and became a muse of Man Ray and the Parisian surrealists. One of the few female photographers to enter Hitler's Germany, she was the first to access his Munich home and among the first to document the liberation of the concentration camps.

Carolyn Burke captures Lee Miller in all her complexity, unveiling the glittering art world of the thirties and forties of which she was a central figure. Meticulously researched, beautifully written, this is an enthralling account of one of the most fascinating women of her era.
