Throughout his journey, he realizes the truths of his own past, having been a victim of rape when he was just seven years old.

In 1914, Lee was sent to stay with family friends near New York while his mother, Florence, was sick in the hospital. While she was there, she was raped and infected with gonorrhea, apparently by a friend or relative of the family she was staying with.

Later in her life, the New York fashion photographer went from being featured in American Vogue to witnessing first-hand the horrors of Nazi Germany, becoming one of the most important photographers of the 20th century.

One of only two female combat photographers during World War II, she was also one of the few female correspondents to venture into the liberated concentration camps.

Before World War II, she worked as a 1920s cover girl and worked with surrealist artists in Europe before embarking on a photojournalism career.

He felt that photography was ‘ideally suited for women as a profession, because I find women to be quicker and more adaptable than men. And I think they have an intuition that helps them understand personalities faster than men.’

In 1937, Picasso painted six portraits of Lee, including one in which he had a third eye.

After a period living in Cairo, he returned to Paris, where he met the British surrealist painter and curator Roland Penrose, who would teach him the use of camouflage in World War II.
