Elizabeth "Lee" Miller, Lady Penrose (April 23, 1907-July 21, 1977), was an American photographer and photojournalist. She was a fashion model in New York City in the 1920s before going to Paris, where she became a fashion and fine art photographer. During the Second World War, she was a war correspondent for Vogue, covering events such as the London Blitz, the liberation of Paris, and the concentration camps at Buchenwald and Dachau. Man Ray (1890-1976) was an American visual artist who spent most of his career in Paris. He was a significant contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements, although his ties to each were informal. He produced major works in a variety of media but considered himself a painter above all. Biography: Jack Graves III is an American artist, born in 1988 in Jacksonville, Florida. He grew up surrounded by inspiration having an art dealer as a father, John Graves Jr., who founded 'The Collector's Exchange' in St. Augustine, FL in 1978, (today Graves International Art). At the age of 5, his family moved away from urban Jacksonville, Florida to rural Somerset, Virginia.
