Lee Miller - Man Ray and the Surrealist Photography

Category: Exhibition 21. May 2015

At the age of 24 Lee Miller moved from New York to Paris. She learned photography of Man Ray, she was his muse but soon she was his partner and a respected photographer of the avant-garde in Paris. As a photographer she invented the technique of solarisation, but let Man Ray take the credit for it.

On the occasion of the "Lee Miller" exhibition at the Museum Albertina in Vienna, curator Walter Moser talks about her Time in Paris and the characteristics of her surrealist photography. She kept her surrealistic sense of the grotesque and paradox, not only in her photographic oeuvre, even in her later career as a cook she surprised her guests with edible blossoms in the salad, green chicken or blue fish, inspired by a painting by Miró.
