Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale presents The Indestructible Lee Miller

Oct 4, 2015 - Jan 3, 2016

This exhibition explores the life and work of the pre-eminent American photographer, Lee Miller, from several perspectives: as the favored fashion model in the 1920s for photographers such as Edward Steichen and Arnold Genthe; as the assistant, collaborator, and muse of surrealist photographer Man Ray in the 1930s; as a heralded art and fashion photographer, and as a combat photographer during World War II. Curated by Bonnie Clearwater, Director and Chief Curator, NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, the exhibition includes stunning photographs of Miller as well as examples of the inventive fashion photographs she made for British Vogue, as well as her fine art photography. The exhibition also includes her work as a war correspondent and combat photographer for Condé Nast Publications, including her photographs of the London Blitz, the liberation of Paris, and the Dachau and Buchenwald concentration camps. Miller was a determined artist who overcame life’s obstacles, constantly reinventing herself through her creative pursuits as circumstances demanded.
