Garry Fabian Miller:Tracing Light at Towner Art Gallery
Talk, Sat 29 Apr 2017, £4-£5
A Certain Kind of Light artist Garry Fabian Miller discusses how his work is inspired by the transforming power of light. Miller is considered to be one of the most progressive artists working with photography today. He employs camera-less photography techniques 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. Miller often uses long exposures lasting anywhere between one and twenty hours to create his unique and luminous images.
