SUPRA is pleased to announce a series of exhibitions at SUPRA retail locations of Mike Miller’s photographs. The first exhibit begins at SUPRA Paris on Thursday, September 27 with an opening reception from 7-11pm. The show runs until October 24.
Michael Miller, not to be confused with hoopers or rappers, is best known for being your favorite photographer’s favorite photographer. In the 1980’s, his work caught the attention of DJ Muggs, producer for Cypress Hills, and the two immediately hooked up for a series of photo-shoots. The resulting images, which became the cover art for a Cypress Hill demo, was the first in a long series of hip hop photographs shot over the course of two decades. Miller has shot over 500 album covers and portraits of everyone from Eazy-E and Redman to Snoop Dogg and Tupac. In fact, Mr. Miller is responsible for some of the most well known, intimately shot photos of Tupac Shakur ever seen around the world. Plus, he’s featured in Volume 3 Issue 3 of RESPECT.
Needless to say, SUPRA couldn’t have picked a more accomplished photographer to honor in their 5 week long exhibition tour. After the SUPRA Paris exhibition, the work will travel to SUPRA NYC for an opening reception on November 1, from 7-11pm, and will be on display until November 28. From NYC, the exhibit will be shipped to the most recent SUPRA location in Santa Monica, CA. SUPRA Santa Monica will host the photographs from December 6 to January 2, with an opening reception on Thursday, December 6 from 7-11pm.
Besides the iconic hip-hop images that will be on display, each exhibit will offer signed copies of Miller’s newest book, a series of limited edition t-shirts, and special custom made t-shirts only available to that unique exhibit location. Mike Miller t-shirts will also be made available at suprafootwear.com.
