Stephen A. Miller was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and discovered photography in his late teens. Through the past twenty-five years he has steadily become more interested in unearthing the human psyche, working on concepts related to the “alchemical” process, and evolution of our inner lives. Recently, he has created several installations using still photography and video, both as solo projects and as collaborations with other artists. Recent work includes collaborations with Tracy Broyles (The Observer Effect), Meshi Chavez (Rhinoceros) and Liminal Theater (Stein). His most recent original work is Adaptation. Stephen lives in Portland with collaborator-musician-wife Lisa DeGrace. He maintains a career in the architectural community, currently as Art Director for Skylab Architecture.
