About Angels in Fall
In this book, vast, rational parking lots loom into focus, the smoggy grid of a Los Angeles neighborhood evaporates into the horizon and a man finds shelter from a rainstorm under an orange plastic sheet in an industrial wasteland… The landscapes of the respected German-born, Los Angeles-based photographer Karin Apollonia Müller evoke human presence and absence and the spatiality of human desire at a time when all things synthetic, flexible and global have overtaken their more organic and local counterparts.
According to Martin Parr and Gerry Badger’s important survey The Photobook Volume II, Müller “shows non-place rather than place, an environment that has an ethereal, other-worldly quality. It is a city familiar to us from moving images, yet in her hands it emerges both fresh and strange. This is the most convincing photographic representation of Los Angeles since that of Ed Ruscha in the 1960s and Robert Adams’ Los Angeles Spring of 1986.” And Christopher Knight of the Los Angeles Times wrote, “A more apposite public portrait of this city would be hard to imagine.”
Born in Heidelberg in 1963, Müller grew up as the daughter of a sea captain. She studied photography and film at the University of Essen before moving to the western United States in 1995. Karin Apollonia Müller’s work has been widely exhibited in the United States and Europe and is included in collections such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum, New York; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
