Wolfgang Mueller Berlin, Germany
Wolfgang Müller found his access to photography whilst traveling. Studying photography at the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences in the class of Prof. Arno Fischer, he turned to the countries of the former Soviet Union as the focus of his work. For his graduate project, he spent totally ten month, up to the year 2002, photographing "Karat. Sky over St. Petersburg". Published as a book, his series of photographs about kids between homelessness, drug use and prostitution was shown in museums and galleries in Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, Russia and the US. Supported by several promotion prizes he was able to finish other photography projects.
Actually Wolfgang Müller is living in Berlin and the focus of his work has turned to China. His long time project about Chinese migrant workers, "Mingong. The Pursuit of Happiness" has been published as a photo book in autumn 2012.
