Wayne Miller photographed life

The great photographer, Wayne Miller, passed away today at the age of 94. He was known for his visions of life captured on film but also for his campaigning to save California’s redwood forests. Wayne Miller, a life worth living and one we should all remember.

Read more about him on HuffPost Arts & Culture’s memorium or in the short documentary on Miller below.

It takes a lot of courage to go out and point your camera one direction rather than another and to think that this is important to photograph.

When you’re happy, find things that relate to that.

When your mad, frustrated, fed up, find things that say that and photograph that too.

A photographer just finds a way of photographing his own concerns.

Other people have those same concerns. So just go out and do it and don’t put off doing it.
