CHIDDINGLY.- Farleys House & Gallery is presenting The Road is Wider than Long, an exhibition exploring surrealist artists Lee Miller and Roland Penrose’s travels through the Balkans in the Summer of 1938, shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War. Photographs taken by Miller and Penrose during this trip are being displayed together, including many by Miller which have never been seen before. The couple’s photographs capture the surreal landscapes they encountered whilst travelling through Greece, Romania and Bulgaria, and document the traditions of local people such as the Roma, whose ways of living would later fall victim to political turmoil and world events of the mid 20th century.

How Lee Miller Cast Her Surrealist Eye on British Vogue

One of the first models that Lee Miller ever photographed for Vogue was herself. It was 1930 and she was in Paris, shifting from having lenses pointed at her by photographers like Edward Steichen to being behind the camera herself. That year she featured in the fashion magazine’s pages as a model, a credited photographer, and in one profile-view portrait — where she’s wearing a Jean Patou coat and a hat with a feather flourish — as both. It was part of Miller’s public coming out as a photographer, showing that she could (literally) wear many hats.

Photographer Lee Miller’s Subversive Career Took Her from Vogue to War-Torn Germany

When war photographer, fashion model and Surrealist muse Lee Miller died at the age of 70 in 1977, her name was known to a select few experts in the art world. Her career was not without its milestones: working with American photojournalist David E. Scherman, she took some of the most famous images of World War II–era atrocities, and she posed for Man Ray and Vogue. Still, her reputation lagged behind her art-historical significance.
