Description Produced to accompany the exhibition at Albertina, Vienna 8.5. –16.8.2015 and NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale 4.10.2015–17.1.2016. Photographs taken in Vienna in 1945 being shown for the first time, this newly published book provides access to Lee Miller's best works, including early Surrealist compositions as well as travel photos. At the end of World War II, Lee Miller travelled through Europe as a war reporter, producing harrowing photographs with historical significance. One of her most spectacular pictures originated in late April 1945 in Adolf Hitler’s apartment in Munich where Lee had a photo taken of herself standing naked in the dictator’s bathtub. This was not long after capturing on film the crimes committed in the concentration camps in Dachau and Buchenwald immediately after their liberation by the occupying forces, one of the first photographers to do so.
