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.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
