Peter Miller

Peter Miller was born in Philadelphia in 1945 and brought up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, developing an early passion for snow scenes, railroad tracks, rain on windows, steel mills, streetcars captured in juvenile award-winning photographs. He was educated at Columbia University and Berkeley, California. In 1977 Miller discovered Japan, moving there permanently in 1981. Influenced by the work of the nineteenth century American artist Peter Henry Emerson, he set out to recover the photogravure technique, first explored by Fox Talbot and Niepce on the threshold of photography, as an ideal means of interpreting the mountains and garden landscapes of Japan with their echoes of Chinese ink-wash painting.

Since 1995 Peter Miller has held ten one man exhibitions in Tokyo, Kamakura, Yokohama, Osaka, Washington DC, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Cologne. Prints of his have been acquired for the permanent collections of Cleveland Museum of Art, National Museum of American Art, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Kamakura Museum of Modern Art and, most recently, the Sackler Gallery of the Smithsonian, where he is (with the exception of Whistler) the only American artist represented in a collection devoted to the art of Asia. Exhibitions with Francis Kyle Gallery 2000 and 2007.
