Exhibition Catalogue Lee Miller in print, presented at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen , Rotterdam, Netherlands (2023-2024).

The book provides a rich overview of Miller’s work and contains texts by, among others, curator Saskia van Kampen-Prein. The exhibition at Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen features approximately a hundred historical magazines, vintage prints, films, archival materials and much more.

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’.
