The great tradition of the U.S. county fair celebrates local agriculture and heritage with entertainment, competitions, bright lights, wild rides, food and fun.

But photographer Greg Miller is fascinated with the human interest angle at fairs across the country. Using a large format 8x10 camera, Miller documented the events, producing a series of intriguing shots commissioned by Life's newspaper supplement.

He told Slate that he would wander round the fairs observing people until something grabbed his attention. 'It's a recurring theme in the pictures,' Miller said. 'People are either breaking up or they're on the verge of a new relationship or you can't tell which way they're going.'
