A central figure of the European photographic avant-garde, Andreas Muller-Pohle (b. Germany 1951) is the editor-in-chief of European Photography, the prestigious magazine which he founded in 1980. His artistic work, initially very experimental and strongly theoretical, has constantly focused on the role and the conditions of creation and reception of photographic perception. In the mid-1990s, he started practicing and exploring digital photography. The artist developed an unusual method, photographing seas and rivers from the inside, immersing himself underwater or photographing at surface level. He presents us with banks, shores and environments, in their natural state or with the destructive changes forced by industrial societies. This subjective point of view provides a poetic and unique environmental approach, in contrast to purely documentary, factual and objective photographers. This shooting protocol, with its experimental undertones, allows a Bachelardian reverie around the aquatic elements while retaining a deeply critical outlook in the face of ecological deterioration.
