From the heart : voices of the American Indian by Lee Miller( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If there is one thing that genocide does," Lee Miller writes in her introduction to this splendid anthology, "it creates heroes." From the Heart introduces Americans to a new pantheon of heroes - men and women of the five hundred Indian nations that have been nearly eradicated, over the past five hundred years, by Europeans and their descendants. More than half of those nations are represented in the speeches gathered here, a greater number and wider geographical range than appear in any other single volume. Lee Miller's heartfelt commentaries supplement a running oral history of the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries as experienced by the natives of this continent - a far different story, with a far different moral, than that which children learn in school

Un mito alegórico surrealista sobre la vida de un poéta que vive lo que crea y se sacrifica a si mismo por su arte
Jean Cocteau's Orphic trilogy( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1. Jean Cocteau turns the Orpheus legend into a story of a poet and his encounter with death and the middle world. 2. An artist is driven mad by the sight of his own blood and a drawing of a mouth that seems to come to life. The combination sends him off on a series of bizarre adventures that strive to explain how artists become obsessed with their own works. 3. In his last film Cocteau portrays an 18th century poet who travels through time on a quest for divine wisdom. In a mysterious wasteland, he meets several symbolic phantoms that bring about his death and resurrection. The film finished the circle of the journey begun in Blood of a Poet, exploring the torturous relationship between the artist and his creations

Lee Miller's war : photographer and correspondent with the Allies in Europe, 1944-45 by Lee Miller( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lee Miller's work for Vogue from 1941-45 sets her apart as a photographer of extraordinary ability, and the quality of her work from the period has long been recognized as outstanding. Its full range is shown here, accompanied by her brilliant despatches." "Miller's words manage to combine immediacy with acute observation, and deep personal involvement with professional detachment. Complementing her natural talent in writing are over one hundred and fifty remarkable photographs from the Lee Miller Archives. With their own quality of surrealist irony, which at times verges on the horrific and at others on the hilarious, they show war-ravaged cities, buildings and landscapes, but above all war-resilient people - soldiers, leaders, medics, evacuees, prisoners of war, the wounded, the villains and the heroes."--Jacket

Lee Miller's war : beyond D-Day by Lee Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller's work for Vogue from 1941-1945 sets her apart as a photographer and writer of extraordinary ability. The quality of her photography from the period has long been recognized as outstanding, and its full range is shown here, accompanied by her brilliant despatches. Starting with her first report from a field hospital soon after D-Day, the despatches and nearly 160 photographs show war-ravaged cities, buildings and landscapes, but above all they portray the war-resilient people--soldiers, leaders, medics, evacuees, prisoners of war, the wounded, the villains and the heroes. There is the raw edge of combat portrayed at the siege of St Malo and in the bitterly fought Alsace campaign, and the disbelief and outrage Miller describes on witnessing the victims of Dachau. The war's horror is relieved by the spirit of post-liberation Paris, where she indulged in frivoluous fashions and recorded memorable conversations with Picasso, Cocteau, Eluard, Aragon and Colette. The book ends with Miller's first-on-the-scene report giving a sardonic description of HItler's abandoned house in Munich, and the looting and burning of his alpine fortress at Berchtesgaden, which marked a symbolic end to the war. David E. Scherman, the renowned war photojournalist who shared many of Miller's assignments, contributes a foreword
Lee Miller : portraits from a life by Richard Calvocoressi( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the late 1920s, Lee Miller, already a legendary fashion model, left the United States to study photography in Paris. Here she became the disciple and lover of Man Ray, and rapidly developed into a witty surrealist photographer. She was soon taking on both portrait and fashion assignments for Vogue and running her own studio, first in Paris and later in New York. The Second World War saw her as Vogue's war correspondent: she covered not only the siege of St Malo and the liberation of Paris, but was also present with her camera when the US Army entered Dachau concentration camp. Her later years were spent in London with her husband, the painter, writer and collector, Roland Penrose, and at their Sussex home, Farley Farm." "During her extraordinary life, Lee Miller came into contact with an astonishing range of people including painters, sculptors, actors, writers, musicians, fashion designers and socialites. Many of these became her friends and also the subject of her penetrating portraits. The finest of these photographs, two-thirds of which are either unpublished or have not been seen in print for over fifty years, are collected together here for the first time. They include not only highly perceptive and sympathetic studies of Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Dora Maar, Igor Stravinsky, Henry Moore, Colette, Marlene Dietrich, Fred Astaire and others, but also pictures of unsung individuals engaged in war work. Most memorable of all are Miller's pictures of victims and perpetrators of Nazi oppression - some of the most powerful images from the last century."--Jacket
Lee Miller in fashion by Becky Conekin( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller was a Vogue cover girl, Man Ray's lover, the first photojournalist at the liberation of Dachau and Buchenwald, and one of the most important female photographers of the 20th century. Combining fine art and urban wit, her photographic technique was learned from the great photographers of her day, among them are Edward Steichen, Man Ray and George Hoyningen-Huene. Becky E. Conekin's Lee Miller in Fashion gives us a wide lens view on Miller's fashion photography. Set against the fast-changing landscapes of New York, Paris, and London, it reveals a neglected chapter in Miller's life: how this incredible woman challenged conventions and broke boundaries in her fashion photography for the leading magazines of the day. Using never-before-seen photographs and archival research, Conekin shows how Miller's fashion photographs were a brilliant combination of sharp wit, high art and modernist edge
