Lee Miller continues her exploration of the effect of solarisation, which she first used in Paris 1929. Here she is interested in the effect of the double exposure on the shimmer and stretch of the corset fabric and the shadows on the body. Taken the same year that Lee turned to solarisation in order to yet again present hair styles in a new way for Vogue’s ‘Neat Heads’ article published in February 1942. Her solarised corsetry series however seems to have not been published, British Vogue opting for drawings instead.
