Lee Miller, a woman's war par Hilary Roberts

Hilary Roberts avec Lee Miller, a woman's war

Lee Miller photographed innumerable women during her career, first as a fashion photographer and then as a journalist during the Second World War, documenting the social consequences of the conflict, particularly the impact of the war on women across Europe. Her work as a war photographer is perhaps that for which she is best remembered in fact she was among the 20th centurys most important photographers on the subject. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, Lee Miller: A Womans War tells the story beyond the battlefields of the Second World War by way of Millers extraordinary photographs of the women whose lives were affected. Introductions by Hilary Roberts and Antony Penrose, Lee Millers son, precede Millers work, which is divided into chronological chapters. Millers photographs, many previously unpublished, are accompanied by extended captions that place the images within the context of womens roles within the landscape of war.

Review
Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words ... tells the story of this remarkable woman with great frankness. --The Times

Proof that the photograph is often more powerful and intense than the moving image. --Observer - Books of the Year

A significant addition to the current scholarship ... a welcome addition to our understanding of this brave woman and outstanding photographer. --Burlington Magazine

Highlighting the story beyond the battlefields, this is a fascinating collection of images and a fitting tribute to one of the 20th century's most important photographers. --Independent

Lee Miller's extraordinary photographs capture the impact of the Second World War on women across Europe. --The Lady

A magnificent biography. --Literary Review
