A girl reading Ebony magazine.

Miller returned to Chicago after photographing Hiroshima and its aftermath in Japan, to embark on a project that he hoped would raise awareness about the marginalized African American community on the city's South Side. Funded by two consecutive Guggenheim grants, Miller immersed himself in the neighborhood between 1946 to 1948 and produced a studied insight into the everyday lives of its residents. As with his previous work, Miller was motivated by a desire, "to know the people that I saw and to try to express how they were feeling about their daily lives and their families." Miller became a member of Magnum Photos in 1958.
