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.
