A Minimal Approach

by Elizabeth Stitch

“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.

"In this case abstraction is focused on the reduction to certain facts, forms and objects but not as an experience of pure non-objectivity.

"The imagination of the viewer supplements what is absent; what thematically is not dissolved receives, an invisible layer through the observer.”
- Florian Mueller

Florian Mueller is an award winning Germany based photographer who' work speaks to the power of minimizing the object of focus in order to see the beauty in the mundane, which we all take for granted. His simple compositions and minimalist approach allows the viewer to study his subjects. Line, color, shape, texture all become the focus. There's beauty in his simplicity. It reminds us to slow down, take a look around and to notice the things that surround us. Mueller's series Singularity is a refreshing look at the world when everything seems to be over done. There is so much visual stimuli, yet Mueller allows his viewers to study his objects without distraction.
