In regards to this solo exhibition The Mayor’s Race: Photographs of the Gloucester Schooner Race 2011 – 2014, Miller says, “Over Labor Day weekend, for the past four years, I have had the privilege to travel back in time to the age of sail by photographing the Mayor’s Race during the Gloucester Schooner Festival. Dwarfed in my thirteen-foot chase boat, these beautiful, graceful and powerful vessels allow me to witness what others saw over a century ago. This past year the Schooner Brilliant participated in the Mayor’s Race and I once again captured her in photographs and watched as she won in her class”.
