karin apollonia muller

really liked karins images of the on the edge series. reminded me a bit of how mexico city looks like from pablo lopez luz lens. Karin has a book coming out in nazraeli press. From the publisher:

On Edge is Karin Apollonia Müller’s second monograph, and the first to be published by Nazraeli Press. While Angels in Fall (2001) dealt with the disconnect between human beings and their environment, On Edge shows the earth “crumbling away”, and our futile efforts to control or hide the subtle invasion of nature into cultivated spaces. Working in color with a muted palette and low contrast, Müller creates powerful images which evoke a sense of displacement in keeping with the artist’s “visitor status” as a foreigner in Los Angeles.
