Born in Bristol in 1957
The son of a commercial photographer, and grew up in Cleveden on the Severn Estuary. ~It was here, in 1976,that he made his first resolved body of work: The Sea Horizon, a sequence of 40 photographs of the sea and sky taken from a fixed point on the roof of his house with the unchanging constants of camera, lens and film. All that differed from one image to the next were the variables of time and the weather, and Miller himself, choosing his moment according to his mood. A simple idea that grew into a complex exploration of time and place and especially light, and which has been much imitated since. Light has always been Miller’s major inspiration and since he gave up using a camera in 1985 it has also been his raw material. Since 1988 Miller has lived and worked in a remote village on Dartmoor, in the south-west of England, and the patterns of life dictated by such proximity to nature, and specifically by the glorious garden that he has built with his family, have an important place in his work. Exhibitions of his work have been seen worldwide including at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum; the Tate Galleries in St Ives and Liverpool; the Cleveland Museum of Fine Art, Ohio and the Yokohama Museum, Japan. A major monograph is published by Merrell this summer. Garry Fabian Miller is represented by the Ingleby Gallery, 6 Carlton Terrace, Edinburgh, Scotland.
