Joel Micah Miller: Master of Light

For Joel Miller, light is more than a photographic tool. In his pictures, it becomes a photographic subject in its own right, lending human figures, landscapes, or even cars an almost unearthly lightness. Everything takes off and starts to shimmer a little, almost like in one of those dreams where you can fly. His wonderful exaggerations of reality go far beyond the cheerful monotony of much of contemporary photography. Genuine lightness is, after all, hard to come by.
