Lee Miller (1907-1977) had many lives: she was a model, muse, photographer, war correspondent and Surrealist chef. It is well known that she was ‘discovered’ on the street at nineteen and that her face appeared on the cover of Vogue a few months later, that she inspired numerous famous illustrators, photographers and artists, and that she flouted convention by picking up a camera and making a name for herself with seductive fashion photos, Surrealist experiments and penetrating war reports. Through this publication, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen reveals the less-well-known fact that, during her lifetime, Miller’s impressive oeuvre was mainly accessible in magazines. Curator Saskia van Kampen-Prein traces Miller’s life and work through the pages of popular lifestyle magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar and avant-garde Surrealist periodicals. Through these magazines, Miller helped to shape the modern world and was her whole life ‘in print’.

Written by Saskia van Kampen-Prein, with short essays by: Antony Penrose, Ami Bouhassane, Madelief Hohé, Hripsimé Visser, Julie Summers, Robin Muir, Lisa Hostetler, Hilary Roberts
