Miller’s singular talent and unbridled tenacity resulted in some of the most indelible war images of the 20th century, including an iconic photo of Miller herself, posing defiantly in Hitler’s private bathtub.

“Lee Miller had a deep understanding and empathy for women and the voiceless victims of war. His images show both the fragility and ferocity of the human experience.
