The Colour of Time is a retrospective overview of the work of Garry Fabian Miller, one of contemporary photography’s most respected and progressive fine art practitioners.

For over 30 years, Miller has challenged perceptions of contemporary photography within fine art and is one of very few photographers to investigate the possibilities of camera-less photography, using light itself as a raw material.

Miller has reinvented himself as an artist specialising in darkroom-produced photographic images exploring the elements of light, time and colour. The artist exposes light directly onto photographic paper through substances such as plants, lead, engine oil, cut-paper shapes, glass and water. The Colour of Time includes invaluable contributions from academics in the field and a chronological exploration of Miller’s works, including the abstract Year One and Year Two series.

The Colour of Time is a beautifully reproduced assessment and welcome addition to the published work of the artist’s progressive and affecting output. Garry Fabian Miller is one of five artists whose work featured in the exhibition Shadow Catchers: Camera-Less Photography at the V&A London in autumn 2010.
