We first met the talented German photographer Marlen Mueller, and therefore became familiar with her work, when we visited the incredible Guggenheim Bilbao in 2013, as we were both invited to the extraordinary ‚Riotous Baroque’ exhibition. Marlen started photographing when she was a mere 12 years old, and after she turned double that age and finished her studies, she recently moved to Berlin to properly pursue a career in photography. The aesthetic one finds in her images has a natural feel, evoking a sentiment of serenity through the oftenly isolated subjects within the frames, using natural light in the best possible way through analog techniques. After having worked on several commissions this year in Germany’s capital, another one of the goals of Marlen was to start exhibiting her work, with her first solo-event taking place on the 27th of November in her new hometown. Whenever in Berlin make sure to visit!
German blog This is Jane Wayne on the work of Marlen:
The images she creates touch [Marlen] herself, she captures people and objects the way they intrinsically are in place and time, straight from her personal feeling at that particular moment.

In 2011 she graduated from the Bauhaus University Weimar in Media, Art and Design.
