You slide down the ladder, bump on the ground and there you are—whacked. Happens. So then you get up and hope the joints work. Yes, that’s me, Peter Miller.

So I have been Vermont Broke. The photography business internationally is in the dumps, thanks to some greedy CEO’s in the stock photo business. The digital revolution cut deep and Lord help us here in Vermont with high taxes, energy costs and escalating fees. And then those like me that live in a house built before the invention of insulation. Even food is more expensive. So it goes and God Bless the local food bank—thank you all!

I have to make changes and I have. Opened an Airbnb and squeezed my photo gallery into one room.  I call it The Squashed Gallery and I AM HAVING A BIG SALE, CLEANING OUT AND STARTING OVER AND THAT MEANS REAL LOW PRICES! Photos from $10 to $600 for real large framed ones. Discounts of up to 60 %. Framed photos, matted photographs in bins: Paris in the 1950’s, Margaux Vendange 1957, Vermont Icons, photos of Stowe and Waterbury, black and white and color. You should take a look at the photos in my Airbnb as you stroll through my guest rooms that, frankly, have paid for my mortgage (but not the rest of it all, god knows!). AND…30% off books including A LIFETIME OF VERMONT PEOPLE and I will autograph all.

SALE IS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY ALL DAY LONG. THAT’S DECEMBER 19-20.

First 20 buyers receive a copy of Nothing Hardly Ever Happens in Colbyville, Vermont, with essays and photos taken in the 1970’s before Colbyville became aesthetically sad. And back then instead of a new motel we had that fornicating pig.

Come to Peter’s Squashed Gallery on 20 Crossroad, just off Route 100, two houses south of Ben & Jerry’s and opposite the Hong Kong restaurant, less than one mile from Interstate Exit 10 on Route 100 heading towards Stowe. This Saturday and Sunday.

Spanking new it is and October 16 is the opening

Spanking new it is and October 16 is the opening

Yep, I’m it again, this time with an opening of my reinvented gallery next to my new Airbnb. October 16 is our opening so come along:

Photographer and author Peter Miller has reinvented his Waterbury gallery. Renamed The Squashed Gallery, photographs hang in rough formations on all walls. Miller’s award-winning books are also on display and they are bins of inexpensive prints.

The exhibition includes wine harvest photos taken in Margaux, France and street photography from Paris. Mr. Miller created the images in the 1950’s. On the opposite wall
are large color scenic and black and white portraits made in Vermont. The Paris photographs were published in his book, The First Time I Saw Paris. The wine harvest photographs have never been published.

The gallery is next to a four bedroom Airbnb that the photographer recently opened in his home. The Airbnb is unique as a library in the Airbnb includes the photographer’s collection of photograph books. On the wall of each bedroom are framed photos from the author’s archive.
“I plan,” said Mr. Miller, “to attract photographers and offer them packages that include lodging and photo tours of my favorite locations.” His photos have been exhibited in New York, Paris and Tokyo and the photographer-author will be signing his latest award-winning book, A Lifetime of Vermont People.

The opening is Friday, October 16, from 5:00 PM at 20 Crossroad, Waterbury, two houses south of Ben & Jerry’s. French wine, cheese and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
