Lee Miller in uniform.

From the astonishing, unmissable exhibition Lee Miller’s Second World War at the Imperial War Museum.

If you don’t know about Lee Miller (Vogue cover girl, surrealist, Man Ray collaborator, muse, mischief maker, artist, war photographer, existing at the intersection of major world events & lives for decades) I urge you to read the available biographies. If you do know about her, don’t miss this show.


12.13.15 ghetto


1994 model of “The Ghetto” – two streets in Hackney squatted by artists who later successfully prevented the council from tearing down the derelict neighborhood. London Fields is now subject to hyper gentrification, with prices of these units averaging over £1 million pounds.
