Mr. Miller received a bachelor of fine arts degree in photography from the School of Visual Arts in 1990. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter.
Photographing people or places has to be for more than the sake of simple description: a story has to be told within the frame. I make photographs to describe an underlying world that exists in the absence of connection. This is manifested in the complicated relationships individuals occupy in the same space as well as with themselves. As a child, I was very aware of how adults around me were relating (or not relating) to each other. I have retained that awareness and it has become the basis for my photography.
