Hello, my name is Lydia Miller, and I am a member of the class of 2023 at The Abraham Joshua Heschel School. I moved to New York City two years ago from Atlanta, Georgia, and have been loving it ever since. I enjoy writing for my school newspaper, The Helios and am also the head photographer there. In school, I am involved in the yearbook, student government, and am the founder of my school photography club. Two of my favorite subjects are science and history, and I especially love investigating genetics and The Renaissance. In my free time, I enjoy reading manga and pestering my cat Pumpkin. jGirls+ has inspired me with everyone’s’ creativity and passion, and I feel honored to work alongside such talented people.
In addition to the images published on jGirls+ as stand-alone works or visuals accompanying articles by other contributors, the following is a curated selection of Lydia’s works.
Lydia Miller is a New York based photographer from Atlanta Georgia. She is currently in 11th grade at the Abraham Joshua Heschel school in Manhattan and has taken a variety of art classes, including graphic design, photography and painting. She began taking photography more seriously after moving to NY. Lydia’s work revolves around the two places she has spent the most time, New York and Washington state, with a focus on portraiture, documentary and landscape. She received the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards Gold Key for her photo titled “She Knows”. Lydia is always taking photos of all that’s going on around her. She enjoys the aesthetics of nature and being able to memorialize people by capturing them in the moment. Being able to do this and look back on those moments in the future is something she is always thinking about when photographing. Because of this her work focuses on the personal; family, familiar places, and important moments. The two most prominent themes in Lydia’s work are aesthetic perfection, and documenting the beautiful and natural moments of daily life. She uses a phone camera, and has a passion working in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for post production.
