Morgan Miller: Recent Photographs
January 24th- February 24th, 2013
Opening Reception: January 25th, 2013, 5-8pm
New York based photographer Morgan Miller grew up immersed in the photography world. He credits his studies of the history of the medium with spurring his artistic evolution, stating: 'Photography is not for lazy people, it is painting with light, it is math, physics and art all melded together. And you have a static image — a movie told in one frame. I have one frame that sits forever still to tell my entire story, to convey an emotional response, to convey a particular emotional response with just one image, to get it right.'
The relationship Morgan has with renowned photographer Peter Beard, is also a strong influence and inspiration. 'I love his vision' Beard has said of Miller. 'He has the third eye… he really gets it.'
Morgan Miller is a graduate of Skidmore College. Recent exhibitions, publications and projects include: “Iconic Images” (with former Metropolitan Museum of Art historian Stéphane Houy-Towner) at Milk Studio Penthouse; the Ferrari Scuderia fine art series; the Leica Portrait Series exhibition (NYC); Renaissance Peace Angel Project (with sculptor Lin Evola) for the 9/11 Memorial Museum; Alice After Wonderland (NYC); personal travel series featuring cities in Spain and Mayan ruins in Mexico, Guatemala and Belize; the Photo-Synthesis Show (NYC); and a series of shots with models set against a Mercedes being cut in half, published under the title “The Clock Strikes Twelve” in Zink Magazine (Summer 2011), as well as having large groups of images repeatedly published in limited edition Fashion/Art magazines such as FLATT (Issues 1,2 and 4) and Creem (Issues 6, and 8). He has recently been selected to be the featured artist for the grand opening of the first and flagship store for Leica Cameras in SoHo, NYC.
