The work of photographer Brian Everett Miller mirrors reality and the complexities of the different perspectives it can generate. The portraits created by the Pittsburgh born artist are the product of three art mediums; Sculpture, Painting, and Photography.
"The conventional goal of photography is too limiting", Miller shares. "My aim is not to record the object as sculpture, but to filter and transform through this other medium, and so the focus can no longer be about representing most accurately what is seen through the lens, but on securing through more inventive means an image that captures a new reality."
Miller discovered his interest in art when he was nearly thirty "after seeing a documentary about twentieth century painting. He subsequently began studying art and photography in depth both formally and informally over next several years."
He began painting "...but quickly developed an interest in the creative possibilities present in photography and decided on it as a primary means of expression. His study of photography covers the genres of street, still-life, fashion, and portraiture, but his artistic sensibilities also have root in many other things such as music, painting, literature, sculpture, and film. As such, his photography is influenced as much by other art-forms as it is by the work of photographers."
