Garry Fabian Miller – photograms

Garry Fabian Miller’s photograms – catching the beam of light to explore its possibilities as both medium and subject.

Using various camera-less methods and long exposures, the artist creates powerful imagery of abstract luminous works to record the cycle of time and experiment with the power to light.

“My interest in light and time is the accumulation of days… I suppose I am using the circle and the square as a place you can inhabit. I think I see the circle more as nature and the square more as thought… When two colours meet they create a third colour and also a kind of floating transitory space. And that kind of edge is a place of disappearing or merging.”

“Combining an archaic photographic technique with objects that are part and parcel of contemporary life and modern consumer society, Swiss artistic duo put them in a rose-pink color of varying degrees of transparency, each boasting an aura of its own. While present in the traces, indeed almost tangible marks, they leave on the paper, they are at the same time absent, slowly fading away in the manner of an afterimage behind closed eyelids.” Martin Gasser Curator / Swiss Foundation for Photography, 2003
