Lee Miller

Born 1907 in Poughkeepsie, United States.
Died 1977 in Farleys House, Muddles Green, United Kingdom.
Lee Miller began her photographic career as a top fashion model for American Vogue and Vanity Fair. In 1929, she became the lover and collaborator of Man Ray in Paris, and within a year ran her own Paris studio, in Montparnasse. In October 1932, she returned to America and set up Lee Miller Studios Inc. in Manhattan, New York, which despite the Depression managed to operate at a small profit in its first year of trading. She closed the studio in mid 1934 to live in Egypt with her husband Aziz Eloui Bey. Her surrealist images from this period are among her most famous, which along with her extraordinary Second World War fashion and combat photographs have earned her a key place in the history of art.
