LEE MILLER: PHOTOGRAPHY, SURREALISM AND BEYOND. Patricia Allmer. Manchester University Press, 2016. Distributed by Oxford University Press. 272 pp. with 91 ills. (19 col.). 25 x 18 cm. ISBN 9780719085475 In English.
Publisher's description: This volume offers a major new critical engagement with the work of one of the most significant, and yet critically neglected, twentieth-century American photographers. Applying art-theoretical analyses and insights afforded by previously unseen and unread material in archives and private collections, Patricia Allmer undertakes a series of revisionary readings of many of Miller's works. These include detailed analyses of famous photographs like Portrait of Space and Severed Breast from Radical Mastectomy, lesser-known works like her photographic portraits of the cast and production team of the avant-garde opera Four Saints, together with well-known bodies of material like her war-correspondent work for Vogue and the photographs she made in 1944 and 1945 traveling across a Europe ravaged by war and totalitarianism.
