Lee Miller (1907–1977) attracts enduring fascination – a female pioneer who is very often presented as a singular figure. However, she was also integrated within a creative network of artists that helped change the course of art history in the twentieth century. The book presents Lee Miller’s photographs of, and collaborations with, important surrealist artists working in Britain alongside their artworks, and reveals the social and cultural networks in which she was embedded, offering a wide view of her work and the life of the surrealist movement in Britain.
