Higher Pictures presents Wayne F. Miller, 1940’s. This exhibition consists of three bodies of work; Pacific Theater, Franklin D. Roosevelt Funeral and Bronzeville (Chicago’s South Side).

Born in Chicago in 1918, Wayne F. Miller studied photography at the Art Center School of Los Angeles before joining the United States Navy in 1942, where he reached the rank of lieutenant. In the two decades following the war, Miller received two Guggenheim fellowships, taught photography at the Institute of Design in Chicago, assisted Edward Steichen on the historic MoMA exhibit The Family of Man, and served as President of Magnum Photos. He has worked freelance for Life, Fortune, Ladies’ Home Journal, Collier’s, and Ebony, and is the author of The World Is Young (Simon & Schuster, 1958) and Chicago’s South Side, 1946-1948 (University of California Press, 2000). He lives with his wife Joan in California.

This exhibition accompanies the monograph Wayne F. Miller 1942 – 1958 published by Powerhouse Books, fall 2008
