Jake Miller has photographed people and places all over the world. He seeks to transcend the illusions that pervade human life so that we can begin to reframe contentious models of thinking and re-imagine boundaries differently than our structures have defined them. He uses images and words to connect people to ideas and to each other in the hope of identifying and erasing harmful divisions used to suppress people and separate them from each other and from the world. Miller is a graduate of Fordham University’s art program and has studied photography at ICP in New York City.
Out of the bleakness and massive chill of a Buffalo winter, Jake Miller has fashioned a visual and text poem of decay, loss, and memory. His photographs find beauty and insight in this freeze that makes us feel happy we are home and warm. A striking hardcover photographic essay that melds word and image masterfully.
