David Miller is a Canadian artist born in Montreal. He studied media and experimental cinema at Sheridan College, art and art history at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (BFA); art and the public sphere at Simon Fraser University’s Institute for Contemporary Art, and completed his graduate research at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design (MAA). Currently, he lives and works in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
His work explores the unrepresentable, presence and absence, the relationship that the technical image establishes between what is evident (appearance) and the unrecoverable (disappearance). The artists’ practice is a persistent enquiry into the nature and act of photography itself.
Notable exhibitions include Das Spydermann at L.A.C.E., Los Angeles; Small World, at Stadtmuseum, Münster, Germany; Execution at W139, Amsterdam, Netherlands; Markado at Centro de la Imagen in Mexico; Collecting Shadows, PlugIn ICA, Winnipeg.
Miller is the 2014 winner of the Duke and Duchess of York Prize in Photography, an annual prize awarded by the Canada Council for the Arts that acknowledges excellence and outstanding achievement in photographic arts.
