Must See: "Lee Miller In Print" By Museum Boijmans van Beuningen

Where surrealist dreams intertwine with photography revolutions

Welcome to the world of Lee Miller – where surrealist dreams intertwine with photography revolutions. But seriously, Lee Miller is an artist we should not only all know more about but be celebrating in fashion and art history. This is precisely why “Lee Miller in Print” by Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is on our must see list.

The exhibition and book features immense research into her oeuvre, including analysis on her portfolio found across Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, and various surrealist publications. Boijmans brings her work to life with the actual archival material on display, while the book, featuring insights from curator Saskia van Kampen-Prein and others, finally gives Miller’s work the recognition it deserves.

Her life itself unfolded like a surrealist script. WWII and fashion photographer? Check. Posing in Hitler’s bathtub…? Double check. Becoming known for her surrealist recipes? Check check check. Despite being an utter trailblazer in the surrealist fashion scene, she kept most of her work unpublished, mysteriously storing it in her farmhouse attic.

To dive deeper into Miller’s curious life and outlandish career, Boijmans is hosting a symposium January 27th featuring some very special guests. We mean, who better to talk about her life than her son and granddaughter – amongst other unique guests. The symposium speakers will share stories from her life as a model, surrealist photographer, writer, chef, and mother.

“Lee Miller in Print” is showing until the 18th of February. So tell your friends, family, and loved ones that you have the perfect winter activity, and we will see you all on the 27th for the symposium 😉
