For over 25 years Mike Miller has cultivated a portfolio that offers some of the most recognizable photography across a slew of creative artistries including Parisian couture fashion and early ’90s gangster rap. Influenced by legends like Lindberg, Roversi and Vallhonrat, the California native developed a signature aesthetic in which he utilizes a method of cross processing film and chemical baths to portrait vivid black and white photographs that are both evocative in emotion as well as thought. His work includes commissions for pioneer brand Stussy, MTV, Death Row Records, PUMA and many more. Having discussed his collaborative Easy E project with another world renowned artist Shepard Farley seen here, Mike Miller is back to discuss his career on a more personal level. Within the above piece, Mike talks about his start in photography, the evolving industry of directing films, and how to keep things real.
