For Document, the photographer shares a selection of images that illustrate the weight of perspective
“This work is situational,” Kristie Muller muses. “The images are the takeaway.” The Toronto-based photographer’s approach is rooted in instances: a temporary spatial alignment, fleeting sunlight, perfectly-dispersed dew, the exact second of collapse.
Stylistically distant from studios and overpriced equipment, Muller’s work is grounded in reality—in improvisational moments—with an eye for naturally-alluring compositions that transcend the choreographed. Her photographs are unplaceable and her practice is instinctual; her lens is engaged when something draws her attention away from whatever it is supposed to be fixed upon—intent on capturing the precise instance when strangeness appears amid monotony. The compulsive and the impulsive, a grimace, a breeze: Muller’s subject is peculiarity itself, and the ways it manifests in unexpected spaces. For Document, the photographer shares a selection of images that embody that philosophy of practice, and illustrate the weight of perspective.
