A Naval combat photographer and one of the first to cover the aftermath of Hiroshima, Miller spent several years documenting the African American South Side community in Chicago, a project for which he received two Guggenheim Fellowships. His sensitive photographs depict the city’s stockyards, steel mills, churches, nightclubs, celebrities and street scenes.
