Irkutsk Regional Art Museum. V.P. Sukacheva in the halls of the Gallery of Siberian Art holds an exhibition “Press & Release. Engraving by Peter Miller ».

Today, Miller is one of the few artists working in the long-forgotten labor-intensive photo-engraving technique invented in the 19th century. His works are stored in the Victoria and Albert Museum (London, UK), the National Museum of American Art (Washington, USA), the Yenisch Museum (Vevey, Switzerland), in the Pushkin Museum. Pushkin and the Museum of the East in Moscow and other world collections.

The work of Peter Miller is filled with extraordinary depth, a conceptual generalization of fleeting natural phenomena and everyday life, an attempt to capture the timeless. Photos, which became the basis for photo engravings, were made by the artist in Japan, Russia, USA, Nepal, Finland, Italy.
