Julie Miller Photography; city images, kaleidoscopes, urban mandalas, reflections, buildings, store windows

After 30 years of writing and editing, I've recently turned my creativity towards photography. I capture detailed views of city life, often photographing reflections to add unexpected takes on familiar elements. From urban scenes, I also create kaleidoscopic images in which new combinations of lines, shapes, and colors present mesmerizing patterns.

 I have had  solo shows at Photoworks in Glen Echo, Md., Temple Emanuel in Kensington, Md., and Paint Branch Unitarian Universalist Church in Adelphi, Md. I've also had a two-person show at Westmoreland Church in Bethesda, Md.

My photos have appeared in juried exhibits:

  • "Look See: Photographs on Reflections," Brooklyn Artists Gym, Brooklyn, N.Y.
  • "20901, 20902, 20903, 20904, 20906, 20910," Gateway's Heliport Gallery, Silver Spring, Md.
  • "Photo Focus," Touchstone Gallery, Washington, D.C.
  • "My Hometown," Washington Gallery of Photography, Bethesda, Md.
  • "Rhythm and Blue," Montgomery College, Rockville, Md.
  • "Art on the Small Side," Touchstone Gallery, Washington, D.C.
  • "Winter Follies," Photoworks, Glen Echo, Md.
  • "Love is in the Air," Photoworks, Glen Echo, Md.

I won first place in the 2011 RTI International photo contest and third place in the 2013 DC Fotoweek Photo Slam and in a national juried exhibit at the Washington Gallery of Photography.

My past projects include "How Buildings See Buildings," "Vivid Venice,"  and "Accidental Architecture" (photos of demolition sites).
