'Surrealist Lee Miller', Anthony Penrose, 2019

Lee Miller’s Surrealist eye informed everything she did. Her work presents the world in a way that challenges us to view it in a different manner. Written and selected by her son Antony Penrose, co-founder of the Lee Miller Archives, author of the highly acclaimed biography The Lives of Lee Miller and editor of Lee Miller’s War. He has been researching, lecturing and working towards conserving the legacy of his mother’s material for 40 years. These 100 full page images from throughout Lee Miller’s life are an attestation to her way of seeing.
