(1907-1977) – Photojournalist
Born in New York state, Elizabeth ‘Lee’ Miller’s career as a photojournalist took her from the fashion pages of Vogue to the front lines of World War Two. She is celebrated as one of the finest photographers of the twentieth century, producing powerful images challenging the objectification of women at home in America, as well as from the frontlines of World War Two in field hospitals and death camps. Not only a brilliant photographer, she was also a writer who in her later years wrote about art, artists and the many aspects of her life.
’Being a good photojournalist is a matter of getting out on a damn limb and sawing it off behind you.’
