Lee Miller

Burke, Carolyn

Lee Miller, the model and muse to artists like Man Ray, the subject of male fantasies, with an inventory of lovers during the pre-war years, morphed into a 'Vogue' photographer, documenting women's clothing in the Second World War. As war correspondent, she photographed corpses at Buchenwald and Dachau concentration camps, later admitting to being out of her depth on these assignments. From this period too came the controversial photo of Miller in Hitler's bathtub.

Carolyn Burke sticks close to Miller in her decline as she loses the interest to maintain her art, reinvents herself as a gourmet chef to deal with PTSD, her last decades marked by alcoholism.

Lavishly illustrated.
