The title Passage: Europe shouldn't be construed to suggest tourist travel. Miller's pensive black-and-white photographs, all but one taken in Latin and Slavic Europe, instead bring to mind Europe's historical journey through the twentieth century. The poet Philip Levine picks up on this implication in his imaginative two-page afterword, which spins a story of personal loss out of an image of an old woman, whose face bears a pained expression, and her reflection in a window. Most of the people Miller shows us are old, exhausted-looking, often bowed or stooped at labor; they are ready to rest. The few children are dwarfed by architecture or nearly swallowed by darkness. In many pictures, soft focus and either long exposure or slight movement of the camera conjure an atmosphere of blurring and dissolving toward death. Death itself is just out-of-frame in several high-contrast scenes of the Nazi concentration camp at Birkenau, preserved as a Holocaust memorial. These pictures are the still, sad music of humanity made visible. Ray Olson
