Silas Bronson Library

Thursday, August 25, 2011, East Wing 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

   James Miller is not the typical Connecticut innovator.  He began photography classes in Danbury High School with Judy Phelps: he was immediately captivated by photography going as far as to convert his bedroom into a dark room.

   He also had an idea—the “Photoglobe” a photographic world that could be rotated on an axis.  In order to bring his idea to life Jim Miller studied business, computer technology  with the late William Lambert of Waterbury Adult Education and patents.  Today he holds patents that protect his idea.  His work “Stallion at the Crossroads” has been a part of the Bronson Library permanent exhibit since March 2011.

   This Photoglobe show also includes a dedication of the Photoglobe two-dimensional layout of “Stallions at the Crossroads” to the Bronson Library as a permanent art display.  “I would like to thank Kevin from the Frame Shop for framing my artwork for the library as a gift.”  “Stallion at the Crossroads” shows the horse at the Waterbury Green standing tall on two legs, proud and majestic as Waterburians pose under the pink apple blossom tree in spring of 2004.  The same art piece will be shown as a three-dimensional Photoglobe.”

   James Miller graduated from a state sponsored program called “The Inner City Cultural Development Program.”  Many years ago in 1973, before the computer age and after many years of research, study and inventive thought, James patented this 3D photographic display called “Mounted Immersive View” trademark name “Photoglobe.”  His first public show was in 2000 and he has shown in several arenas in the New England area:  the Connecticut Capitol, UConn, Hartford College for Women, Mattatuck Museum, Barnes & Noble and the Harambee Youth Center in Danbury.

   This past year he has worked with UConn senior engineering students on a projected called the ‘Photoglobe commercialization’s project.’  Students engineered the current Photoglobe technology as a study project to advance the methodology assisting in a faster photographic and production process.

   Please join us Thursday, August 25, 2011, East Wing 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The exhibit will be shown from August 25th through September 5th.
