PHOTOGRAPHY – E.P. Miller’s Beautiful Umbrella Movement Photography

Hong Kong business, lifestyle and portrait photographer E.P. Miller specialises in capturing the unique personal qualities of people at work and casual settings. His latest set was shot at the Umbrella Movement protest sites.

He says: “Pro-democracy demonstrators have created a culture that is creative, peaceful and resourceful. These things are ingrained in the human experience but the combination and delivery of these things is distinctive to the culture of Hong Kong. The significance of it all is present in the eyes and expressions of the people I meet. Capturing that is a natural extension to the type of photography I’m most passionate about doing.”
