9781888899054: Passage: Europe

This is a rare and beautiful lyric poem through the medium of photography. Richard Copeland Miller's haunting images reveal his incisive and compassionate vision of the mysteries and realities of everyday life. The book brings together profound images from the streets and countryside of Europe in a touching portrayal of the human condition. With an unflinching yet sensitive eye, Miller captures the random dramas of daily existence, interspersing the sweetness of life with the struggle for survival. Miller's photographs reveal the movement and rhythm of life, the fleeting details and mysteries unfolding in common places and chance moments. His photographs embody the ineffable spirit of every man, every woman, and every child who fights for life in a troubled world. Miller's Photographs, glimpses of brief moments in time, are revealing in their depth as they expose truths, half-truths, and sometimes imagined stories.

About the Author:

Richard Copeland Miller

From Booklist:

The title Passage: Europe shouldn't be construed to suggest tourist travel. Miller's pensive black-and-white photographs, all but one taken in Latin and Slavic Europe, instead bring to mind Europe's historical journey through the twentieth century. The poet Philip Levine picks up on this implication in his imaginative two-page afterword, which spins a story of personal loss out of an image of an old woman, whose face bears a pained expression, and her reflection in a window. Most of the people Miller shows us are old, exhausted-looking, often bowed or stooped at labor; they are ready to rest. The few children are dwarfed by architecture or nearly swallowed by darkness. In many pictures, soft focus and either long exposure or slight movement of the camera conjure an atmosphere of blurring and dissolving toward death. Death itself is just out-of-frame in several high-contrast scenes of the Nazi concentration camp at Birkenau, preserved as a Holocaust memorial. These pictures are the still, sad music of humanity made visible. Ray Olson
