    In this issue of the magazine, Judith Thurman writes about Lee Miller, the playgirl, model, photographer, muse, and war correspondent whose work is featured in a retrospective, “The Art of Lee Miller,” which opens on January 26th at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. “She had the gift of finding beauty in a wasteland, and her eye tends to petrify what it looks at,” Thurman writes. “Organic forms and living creatures become abstract in her pictures, but movingly so—the way a nymph fleeing an aggressor is transformed into a star.” Here is a portfolio of Miller’s work in front of and behind the camera.
