Children in a movie theater. USA. 1958.

The 1950s marked a moment of transition within Miller's own work. Following the birth of his first child, the photographer began to turn his lens inwards and dedicated himself to photographing his own family. "It was as though I had never been a child," he explains in the film The World is Young. "Living it through my children's eyes was exciting to me and very enriching. It is amazing to see how another person reacts to life." Miller regarded childhood as a period of continual discovery and excitement and endeavored to capture this by documenting the everyday lives of his four children. In 1958, the same year he was elected to Magnum Photos in New York, a selection of this work was published as Miller's first photo book, The World is Young.
