Robby Müller: Amsterdam Photos

As a photographer Müller captured the city as he saw it, as a collection of reflections, paying attention to reflections in store windows or on a hood, with an eye for the characteristic Amsterdam light.

After a successful 16-year film career in Hollywood, renowned cameraman Robby Müller (1940 - 2018) settled back in Amsterdam in 1992. He would continue to live there until his death, always with a camera in hand.

Robby Müller was one of the greatest pioneers in his field. He worked with directors such as Wim Wenders on such iconic films as Alice in den Städten (1974), Im Lauf der Zeit(1976) and Paris, Texas (1984); Jim Jarmusch' Down by Law (1986), Dead Man (1995) and Mystery Train (1989); Lars von Trier's Breaking the Waves (1996) and Dancer in the Dark (2000).

Amsterdam Photos
Upon returning to Amsterdam, Müller recorded the city as he saw it, as a collection of reflections, paying attention to reflections in store windows or on a hood, a striking interplay of lines, and, as befits a "Master of Light," the characteristic Amsterdam light.

For years, the photos sat in archive boxes until, in 2019, his wife, picture editor Andrea Müller-Schirmer was asked to publish a weekly column in the Dutch newspaper Het Parool. For a year, a photo appeared every week, always of Amsterdam, always unmistakably Robby Müller. Amsterdam light, the column was called, true to its creator's aesthetic. The photos show Müller's view of Amsterdam, with its characteristic play of light and lines, reflection and composition. Short pieces of text appeared with the photographs - associations by Andrea, telling much about Robby's way of life and work.
