Photographers whose work I like - No22/ Bucky Miller

I came across the work of Bucky Miller on line and liked it immediately. His photographs have a strange WTF quality about them, mysterious, ambiguous and as much about what's not in the frame as what's in. The pictures are spare but loaded. Miller has a quiet sense of humor too. As a preamble to his DESTROYER series he says this - I was interrupted while photographing in a shopping mall parking lot: "You should get permission from security to do that, on account of the heightened awareness levels and all." Heightened awareness levels of what, I asked. "Everything." he said. "of everything."

Miller says this about himself: Bucky Miller was born in Phoenix, Arizona. He has a BFA in photography from Arizona State University. In early 2013 he completed a residency at the grassroots arts institution Tempe Museum of Contemporary Art. He recently returned from the Little Brown Mushroom Camp for Socially Awkward Storytellers in St. Paul, Minnesota and is currently probing the country for photographs and other things.

Miller's certainly has heightened awareness. You can see for yourself by checking out his website HERE. And below are some images from his DESTROYER series.
