Nicholas Muellner is an artist who operates at the intersection of photography and writing. This event focuses on his most recent image-text project In Most Tides an Island, published by SPBH Editions.

About

As with all his work initially evolved as a visually choreographed slide lecture, from which the related but distinct book emerged. Here Muellner presents the original lecture, integrating over 130 images, many not included in the book. 

Seductive, disorienting, informative and allegorical, In Most Tides an Island is at once a glimpse of contemporary post-Soviet queer life, a meditation on solitude and desire in the digital age, and an inquiry into the nature of photography and poetry in a world characterized by cruelty, longing, resignation and hope.

Nicholas Muellner is a photographer and writer based in West Danby, New York and Los Angeles, USA. Through books, exhibitions and slide lectures, his projects investigate the limits of photography as a documentary pursuit and as an interface to literary, political and personal narratives. His image-text books include The Amnesia Pavilions (2011) and The Photograph Commands Indifference (2009). He is Co-Founder of ITI Press and the Image Text MFA at Ithaca College.
