We recently featured talented photographer, Florian Müller’s “Inside Concrete Cross“. And now, for this project, he was invited to Hong Kong, with a gallery which sells some of his pictures. They organized a “Meet the artist”-event. So, he wandered through this chaotic, strange but beautiful city with his camera and found a lot of fascinating places and motives like the meat market or the tower blocks in Kowloon. The Museum Of Art with the Cultural Center. This is how this project materialized.
In times of an endless flood of images and greed for perfection I see the necessity to look into an entirely different direction: The images is not enough, it is the abstraction and the individual view of the beholder, together they reach into and below the surface of customary patterns of conception.
It is a challenge: Taking pictures of places, buildings, landscapes, which are thousands upon thousands of times photographed and find new angles, perspectives or details which make the beholder curious, make him linger and start an individual dialogue with the picture. It is a about the evocation of thoughts, associations, emotions and memories.
About Florian Müller
Florian Müller – Born 1974 in Cologne, Germany. Studied German and English philology. Worked as journalist, tv-moderator, book seller, still photographer for film. Got my first camera in the age of 10 from my father, a Kodak Instamatic. My father taught me this little dance between shutter and aperture and developing films and pictures in the darkroom. After first personal projects, jobs as set-photographer for TV production companies and advertising agencies I developed the desire to progress and to force and establish my way of photographing in order to extend my own artistic and photographically context. Influenced by the second important professional aspect – the communication – arose over time multidimensional and ambiguous images which almost demand an interaction with the beholder.
