Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Zoriah Miller (born January 27, 1976) is a noted photojournalist and war photographer whose work has been published and exhibited extensively.[1] Initially trained in Disaster Management and Humanitarian Aid to Developing Countries, he worked for international aid organizations such as the Red Cross before returning to photography after a long absence. Although working with numerous international photo agencies including World Picture News (WPN), Reporters Agency, The Image Works, and EyePress Photo Agency in China, Miller remains independent and produces his photo stories on a freelance basis.

His images of conflict in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Gaza Strip and Lebanon have been widely published and have traveled to many countries around the world in museums and fine art galleries. Photographs that he took in Iraq of dead US Marines after a suicide bomber in Al-Karmah that he posted on his website were widely discussed and brought to light the issue of wartime censorship.[2]
