Man Ray and Lee Miller

Lee Miller by Man Ray 1930
Lee Miller
Recently I visited the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, and saw the current exhibit featuring May Ray and Lee Miller. Previously I knew of both photographers, and had my favorites from each, but did not know of their ongoing relationship and collaboration throughout the years (from 1929 to 1976). The exhibit covers the different phases of their friendship, corresponding with the art created during the time by both artists, as well as other artists like Picasso and Dali. My two favorites of Man Ray and Lee Miller are included here, as well as some of my favorites from the exhibit. Well worth seeing.
