Lee Miller was one of Man Ray's artistic collaborators and together they created some of the most striking images in Man Ray's oeuvre. In their youth they were lovers and this evolved into an enduring friendship in later life. Antony Penrose, Lee Miller's son, shares his unique perspective on growing-up around his mother's Surrealist friends and his father, the British Surrealist artist and huge admirer of Man Ray, Roland Penrose.
Antony Penrose grew up surrounded by artists. He adored Man Ray who encouraged him to make his own objects and puns. As the Director of the Lee Miller Archives and the Penrose Collection, he has been working on the conservation and dissemination of his parents work for over thirty years.
