Eric Miller grew up in Johannesburg. He studied psychology and worked briefly in the corporate sector before joining Afrapix in the mid 1980s to photograph the anti-apartheid struggle.
His work appeared regularly in the Weekly Mail, the New Nation, and other progressive publications. Since 1994, Miller has photographed throughout Africa; much of his South African work has focused on the transformation of society, especially in respect to housing, health, education, and labor.
Miller’s photographs are exhibited in South Africa and abroad. His latest work, Rebel Chic, offers a glimpse into the lives of Joseph Kony and the soldiers of the Lord’s Resistance army in Uganda.
Miller mentors and trains young photojournalists.
