Artist Network and Volkswagen are introducing the German photographer in this short film. Sorry the video is in German only.
“Born in 1979 in what used to be Karl-Marx-Stadt, Andreas Muehe has created an oeuvre of extraordinary consistency in his still short career. In a virtuoso manner he handles the camera technique, he arranges very sophisticated lighting concepts and has, in just a few years, worked for the most important magazines and advertising agencies. He primarily uses a large format camera to stage portraits and group pictures to the smallest detail. The posers trust him; their individuality shines in the photographs, close and uncompromisingly honest.” F.C. Gundlach
