review: the woman in the photograph by dana gynther

I went into The Woman in the Photograph knowing little about Lee Miller and Man Ray, whose lives Dana Gynther fictionalizes in her second novel, but feel I know them well thanks to Gynther’s elegant depiction that brings them to life. The Woman in the Photograph is full of romantic entanglements and professional jealousies, especially as Miller’s star rises and Ray takes credit for her work. Gynther draws upon the known history of the two artists and their associates to create animated scenes that explore the life of a woman with tremendous independence for her time.
4/5
