  • Product description

    This book is the first to redress the balance by exploring Lee Miller's unprecedented contributions as both model and photographer to the century’s leading fashion magazine, Vogue. From the late 1920s when her face graced its cover, to the 1940s and 1950s when her stunning photographs lit up its pages, Vogue was the primary outlet for Miller’s daring, creative vision. Miller’s transition from one side of the camera to the other was unprecedented, and her fashion self-portraits, in which she was simultaneously model and photographer, are unique in the history of fashion photography. Only a few short years after she picked up the camera for the first time, Vanity Fair would declare her one of the ‘most distinguished living photographers’. The story of Lee Miller in Fashion is also the story of an amazing transatlantic creative community, in New York, London and Paris, as well as the changes that rocked the world in these glittering, then tumultuous decades. Becky E. Conekin seamlessly intertwines this fascinating history with Miller’s life and accomplishments, as well as those of her friends and peers, including Edward Steichen, Man Ray, and Picasso. The result is a vivid, beautifully illustrated read about one of the century’s true individuals.
