Galerie hiltawsky is pleased to present an extensive retrospective of the American photographer Lee Miller (1907 – 1977).
The exhibition showcases eighty of her works and has been developed in close collaboration with the Lee Miller Archive in East Sussex, Southern England.
The retrospective encompasses all of Lee Miller’s significant subject matter: her Man Ray collaboration; surrealist motifs – found images; portraits of artists and friends, such as Picasso and Max Ernst; photographs from her time in Egypt; fashion photographs, including images she made as a war photographer during the London Blitz and of the continent’s liberation from the fascism in Paris and Germany.
Special thanks go to the longstanding director of the archive’s curator Carole Callow, who leaves this summer after thirty five years. The Lee Miller Archive has also largely ceased its collaborations with galleries – other than with Offer Waterman and Clair Gallery. Consequently and regretfully, this marks the final Lee Miller exhibition at galerie hiltawsky.
