Greg Miller is the recipient of a 2008 John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in Photography. His most recent series of photographs, entitled Distant Relatives (photographs of his hometown, Nashville, TN), has shown in Los Angeles, is currently on exhibit at the Cheekwood Museum in Nashville and is scheduled to exhibit at +Kris Graves Projects in Brooklyn, NY in March 2010. Miller was born in Nashville in 1967. He received a full scholarship to attend the School of Visual Arts in NY, and graduated with a BFA in 1990. Since 2001, he has taught at the International Center of Photography in NY. His work is widely exhibited and collected.

In Distant Relatives, Miller returns to neighborhoods and residences in Nashville where he grew up as starting points for his photographs. In these locations he chooses to photograph people and places that loosely conjure the familiar character of his own past. While obliged by a large format camera to interact with his subjects, Miller still retains the spontaneity of the photographic moment. What emerges are well-detailed stories set in evocative landscapes with a trace of distant memory.

Greg Miller will have a solo exhibition at +Kris Graves Projects during the month of March, opening on March 4th.
