Lee Miller in Fashion
Lee Miller is renowned as a great 20th-century photojournalist, but the woman who photographed the liberation of Dachau began her career as a fashion model in 1920s New York. In the 1930s she switched from New York to Paris and London and from model to fashion photographer. This first study of that aspect of Miller's work presents an outstanding collection of photographs taken for Vogue and couture houses, revealing fashion as the backbone of her extraordinarily varied career.
