The following is an excerpt from the Los Angeles Times on October 16, 2010. Copyright by the Los Angeles Times.

“He was way ahead of his time,” said Craig Krull. “When he photographed the Hollywood Freeway, nobody at that time was thinking about photographing a project like that for artistic purposes.”

There were also images of an evolving Los Angeles, “‘snapshots’ of a city coming into its own,” The Times said earlier this year, as well as Miller’s signature prints made with the Carbro process, a complex and now-arcane color-printing technique that produces vibrant archival-quality prints from pigments rather than dye.

Never one for self-promotion, Miller rarely exhibited his work. Three books featuring his photographs were first printed in 2009, the year he turned 97.
