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.
