Lee Miller’s Eye

28th September – 31 October 2013, Saint-Paul de Vence

“Lee Miller had a prodigious life. More accurately, she had half a dozen discrete, selfcontained prodigious lives, one after another”. It is thus that David Scherman, close friend and colleague of Lee Miller, attempted to describe the great American photographer.

The photographs exhibited at Clair Gallery, Saint-Paul-de-Vence, reveal the various facets of the photographer. She was a fashion photographer, war reporter, observer of the times, a friend of Picasso and a Surrealist muse.

Lee Miller’s vision is at once manifold and deeply personal. This exhibition invites the viewer to rediscover a bygone period, and the unexpected encounters between a photographer and her times.
