Garry Fabian Miller
Tapestries + Rugs
Garry Fabian Miller (b.1957) was born in Bristol and is an internationally recognised photographic artist, specialising in ‘camera-less’ photographs since the mid-1980s. He has exhibited extensively in Europe, Japan and America, and has work in many major collections including the Metropolitan Museum, New York and Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Fabian Miller works in the darkroom, shining light through coloured glass vessels and over cut-paper shapes to create forms that record directly onto photographic paper. His earliest works were made by inserting 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. With the digital age of photography and the discontinuation of Cibachrome paper, Fabian Miller has sought new ways of working and most notably in his recent collaborations with Dovecot to create hearth rugs and a tapestry.
