Jean Miele For Frank Hurley and A Thin Place

(L to R): For Frank Hurley, 2009   /  A Thin Place, 2009


Brooklyn based photographer, Jean Miele, uses photography to explore the borderlands between fiction and reality, delving into his interest in perception, spirituality and mysticism to create his images. While drawing on 19th and 20th century ideals, he has enthusiastically embraced the 21st century photographic techniques.


On exhibition at Catherine Couturier Gallery, formerly John Cleary Gallery, will be two of the artists series. The Vintage Series: Scientific Inquiries presents an interplay between words and images that explores the connections between science, theology, cartography and photography. Each photomontage melds the artist’s own photographs with historical artifacts, ranging from ancient manuscripts to 19th century glass plates to NASA images.

Miele’s work has appeared in numerous shows and publications across the globe, including The Houston Center for Photography, Photo London and Fotografiens Hus Gallery in Oslo, Norway, among others.  In addition to making fine art photography, Miele is an in-demand teacher, whose workshops, seminars and one-on-one instruction empower students to realize their own photographic vision in the modern age.

    Stunning images by a photographer whose work becomes only more and more beautiful and compelling. I've been following Miele's work for many years.
