Abstract

This book examines how Miller's war photographs can be interpreted as surreal documentary combining a surrealist sensibility with a need to inform. Each chapter contains a close analysis of specific photographs in a generally chronological study with a thematic focus, using comparisons with other photographers, documentary artists, and Surrealists, such as Margaret Bourke-White, Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, George Rodger, Cecil Beaton, Bill Brandt, Henry Moore, Humphrey Jennings and Man Ray. In addition, Miller's photographs are explored through André Breton s theory of convulsive beauty his credence that any subject, no matter how horrible, may be interpreted as art and his notion of the marvellous.[Description from Publisher]
