Remax on Shepard Fairey: "Andre the Giant Has a Posse" (…OBEY…) sticker campaign and muses: Lee Miller was the perfect muse. Miller had been modeling for a few years when she ran into Conde Montrose Nast. For those of you who don’t know who Conde Montrose Nast is, he is the founder of Vogue. He helped start her short but successful career in the fashion world as a model. She then moved to Paris to be mentored by the legendary visual artist Man Ray. To no one’s surprise, the two became lovers and documented the idiosyncrasies of their relationship through photography. The works were more focused on Miller and her mysterious aura. There was something both captivating and unknowable about her, which inspired Ray. His works still inspire artist today and Miller was definitely his most influential muse.
