Most Beautiful Colorized Images In History
Lee Miller soaks in Adolf Hitler’s bathtub! The only female combat photographer in Europe during World War Two. She is pictured in Hitler’s Munich apartment on April 30, 1945.
Before she was a photojournalist traveling through war torn countries, Lee Miller was a successful fashion model living in New York City. During a stay in pre-war Paris she worked with surrealists like Cocteau and Man Ray before she decided to change her profession and hop onto the other side of the camera.
Miller attached herself to the 83rd Infantry Division of the US Army which brought her to Germany where she photographed the atrocities of Dachau before going to Hitler’s apartment in Munich. In the photo Miller’s boots are covered in the mud of the Dachau concentration camp, which turns the whole thing for a surreal image to a big F You to the leader of the Third Reich.
After her time as a war correspondent she retired to her farm in Sussex, England where she languished in obscurity while hanging out with the likes of Pablo Picasso while preparing surreal meals like blue spaghetti and green chicken.
