Garry Fabian Miller
Garry Fabian Miller gained recognition for his landscape-based images in the 1970s, but has been making ‘camera-less’ images since the mid 1980s. Miller experiments fully with the nature and possibilities of light as both medium and subject, and is considered one of the most progressive artists working in photography today. His early works were created in the darkroom shining light through translucent objects such as leaves, seedpods and flower heads, and using them as transparencies through which light passed onto light-sensitive paper. But for more than 20 years he has created abstract pictures by passing light through coloured glass, liquid and cut paper forms. His exposures can last anywhere between one and 20 hours. The resulting pictures have a wonderful luminosity. The largest public collection of his work is held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
