In this episode, photographer Greg Miller joins us to discuss photographing on Ash Wednesday, winning a Guggenheim, photographing in his hometown of Nashville, teaching workshops, the importance of mentors and much more! We are also joined by guest host Manjari Sharma who has now made an appearance on all three season. Manj credits Greg as one of her mentors and suggested him for the show, big thanks to Manj! She always brings a lot of enthusiasm and wisdom to the conversation.
I admire Greg’s photography deeply and learned a lot from our conversation that I will apply to my own work. His enthusiasm and passion for photography are inspiring. It’s clear that he has natural teaching ability which is rare, despite everyone seemingly being a photography teacher these days. Greg is the real thing both as a photographer and educator.
“Greg is a recipient of a 2008 John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and his work has been included in several solo shows in Los Angeles, Barcelona and the Cheekwood Museum in Nashville, TN as well as group shows in New York City, including Yossi Milo, James Danziger and Sasha Wolf Galleries. His work has appeared regularly in TIME, Esquire, Fast Company, LIFE and many other publications.
Since 1999, Miller has been a faculty member at the International Center of Photography in New York.”
