Man Ray - Lee Miller portraits
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Lee Miller, Man Ray’s lover, over time grow tired of being seen as simply a muse, and ached to break free of the confines of Ray’s Studio and develop herself fully as an artist in her own right. In 1932 Lee left Paris, constantly under siege from men who wanted to assert ownership over her, she returned to New York to establish her own studio. As they lived out their lives, heading in dramatically different directions with separate friends and family, there was a part of their lives that was always shared.
