About me

My father gave me my first camera when I was 7 years old: an Agfa Rapid with three modest settings: Sun, clouds and flash. First click and I’ll always be grateful to him for that.

Later he showed me the magic transformation of a sheer white paper into a photography in the darkroom. Second click and it never let me go.

Nowadyas Florian W. Mueller is an internationally awarded, exhibited, published and booked photographer. His specialties are architecture, landscape, people, advertising and abstract photography. Since 2013 he is a professional member of the renowned BFF (professional association of freelance photographers and film designers e.V.) alongside big names like F.C. Gundlach, Peter Lindbergh, Sarah Moon or Oliviero Toscani.
Since 2018 he is a member of the board as chairman of the area NRW.

In 2016, he joined the honorable AOP (Association of Photographers) in London and became a finalist at the 2016 AOP Awards. In 2017 he was a 6-time finalist and won one of the coveted 12 AOP Awards.

His work has been exhibited in galleries in Paris, London, Berlin, New York, Zhouzhou (China), Dusseldorf, Cologne, Athens, Köping (Sweden) and was added to the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, USA in June 2018.

He led the first „Porsche Photography Masterclass“ in Malaysia in 2017 and teaches photography and fine art worldwide.

„Creating pictures with my camera is like tiptoeing into a world beyond visual perception. I try to imagine the space between emotion and reality.“

Florian W. Müllers Arbeiten sind immer überraschend., immer anders. Seine Lust am Experiment, gemixt mit dem Spaß am Unkonventionellen und gewürzt einem Hauch Anarchie machen seine Arbeiten aus.
Was im Endergebnis auf den ersten Blick wie ein fröhliches Chaos daherkommen könnte, ist aber ebenjenes genau nicht. Florian W. Müllers Arbeiten sind eine emotionale, spontane und intelligente Reaktion auf die überflutende und satte Bilderwelt der Jetztzeit.
Aber nicht nur das: Seine Bilder sind – verpackt in sehr ästhetisch und wunderschön anzuschauende Bildern – Kommentar, Zeitgeist und Standpunkt zugleich.

… Und genau diese blinden Flecken und unmöglichen Punkte sind das wesentliche Arbeitsfeld von Florian W. Müller.
Insgesamt sind seine Arbeiten eine Herausforderung für den Geist und das Unterbewusste. Sie lassen sich irgendwo zwischen digitalen Collagen und der Konzeptkunst verorten und liefern einen erstaunlichen Beitrag zur zeitgenössischen Fotografie.

A recurring theme in Mueller’s work is the creation of abstract images from landscapes and structures. In this regard, Mueller’s role is between painter and architect, taking imperfections from raw images and forming them into new worlds. The physical transparency of these alterations belies their thematic opacity, which encourages the viewer to pause and piece together Mueller’s process. Mueller obliges in revealing the emotional heart of his work, as he skillfully melds moments of mystery and intrigue with flourishes of contrasting colors and the intersecting lines of his superimposed structures.
