Karin Apollonia Müller's On Edge

I stumbled upon Karin Apollonina Müller's website today. Her series On Edge falls within one of contemporary photography's most explored relationships, the one that exists between the constructed and natural world. Nevertheless, Müller possesses a sensitivity toward her subjects that results in images which contribute something interesting to the discourse of what man's encroachment on nature really means. In her statement, she succinctly asserts:

"In “Edges” I am interested in how the earth crumbles away and how in our desperate attempt we are trying to control or hide the subtle invasion of nature in cultivated space."
