Post taggati Man Ray
Elizabeth “Lee” Miller (1907–1977) was an American photographer, fashion model, and WWII war correspondent for Vogue. She was also the assistant, partner and lover of surrealist Man Ray.
In 1929, Lee traveled to Paris with the intention of apprenticing herself to the artist/photographer. While in Paris, she began her own photographic studio, often taking over Man Ray’s fashion assignments to enable him to concentrate on his painting. In fact, many of the photographs taken during this period and credited to Man Ray were actually taken by Lee. Together they rediscovered the photographic technique of solarisation.
