Graham Miller is one of Western Australia’s most important photographers. He is known for his atmospheric images that combine cinematic vision with the eye-for-subtle-detail of a short story writer.

AGWA's WA Focus display presents works spanning more than fifteen years of Miller's output. It comes together around two distinct threads: a body of landscape works and a group of portraits. Generous in spirit and outlook, his works are emotionally rich and often moving portraits of people and places. Each portrait invites curiosity about the possible events that have brought his subjects to this point in their lives, and each landscape evokes the sensation of being fully within the urban and natural environments presented.

Included in this display are works from Miller’s most important series, Waiting for the Miracle 2010 that developed from Miller’s response to the Leonard Cohen song of the same name; All That is Solid Melts into Air 2013/2014 that charts the people and landscapes of the Blue Mountains around Katoomba; and American Photographs a body of work taken on an American road trip in 2009.

The exhibition also include two works shot in China in 2010, five small duo-tone riso prints on the subject of looking, and several Australian works not yet exhibited by Miller.
