Garry Fabian Miller Biography

Garry Fabian Miller has a deserved reputation as one of the most progressive artists working with photography today. Much of Miller's early work was landscape based. He gained international acclaim in the 1970's for his photographs of sky, land and sea, particularly for the series titled Sea Horizons of England that were first shown at the Arnolfini Gallery in 1979.

Since the mid-1980s, Miller has worked without a camera using the techniques of early nineteenth century photographic exploration to experiment with the nature and possibilities of light as both medium and subject. His earliest camera-less photographs look back to the pioneers of photography in the 1830s and 1840s, passing light through translucent objects, principally leaves, seedpods and flower heads, into an enlarger and using them as transparencies through which light passed on to light-sensitive paper.

Since 1992, Miller has explored a more abstract form of picture-making by passing light through coloured glass and liquid and cut paper forms. In sharp contrast to the norm of photographic exposures that last for a fragment of a second, Miller often uses long exposures lasting anywhere between one and twenty hours to create his unique and luminous images.

Miller is represented in numerous private and public collections worldwide. In October 2010, he was one of five artists in Shadow Catchers, a major survey of camera-less photography at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Recent exhibitions at Ingleby Gallery include The Middle Place (2013), The Colours (2009) and the group exhibition A Little Bit of Magic Realised (2011). Recent solo exhibitions include Dwelling, at Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh, and Bliss, HackelBury Fine Art, London.
