cfp: A surrealist eye - new essays on the art of Lee Miller

Lee Miller is increasingly championed for her Surrealism-inspired photographs. Her images of Paris during the late-1920s and early 1930s when she was the muse and lover of Man Ray, her unique portraits of a desert landscape taken in and around Egypt in the 1930s, and her witty yet poignant and often disturbing images taken during the Second World War and its aftermath, are often discussed. Yet, while popularity in Miller’s complex life and photographic work is rapidly growing, her true worth as a Surrealist artist in her own right remains open to further scholarly exploration.

This new collection of essays, therefore, aims to validate Lee Miller’s position, not simply as a muse, friend, and collaborator with the Surrealists, but as one of the Twentieth Century’s most important and influential female Surrealist artists.


Abstracts of 500 words maximum and a short biography to be submitted by Friday 10 July 2020.
