Born in 1957, Garry Fabian Miller has made exclusively ‘camera-less’ photographs since the mid 1980s. He works in the darkroom, shining light through coloured glass vessels and over cut-paper shapes to create forms that record directly onto photographic paper. These rudimentary methods recall the earliest days of photography, when the effects of light on sensitised paper seemed magical.

‘Thoughts on a Night Sea’ is perhaps Miller’s most personal and reflective works to date, in that it echoes one of his first breakthrough pieces: ‘The Sea Horizon’ (1976 – 1977). Deeply formal, yet profoundly spiritual, Fabian Miller’s imagery straddles the Modernism of international figures such as Donald Judd, Elsworth Kelly and James Turrell with a sense of essential Englishness, and an appreciation of the sublime.
