Like Sunlight Coming Through the Clouds

Like Sunlight Coming Through the Clouds featured a wide selection from Robby Müller’s extensive archive of Polaroid photographs from the early 1970s to the late 1990s. The exhibition highlighted Müller’s ability to make iconic images that reflect not only his unique view of the world, but also his talent for creating something new and radiant. The same poetic sensibility is depicted in these captured silent moments as in his film images, which earned him the nickname “Master of Light”.

The exhibition, first on view in 2019 in Arles and then at various other places, was curated by Andrea Müller-Schirmer and supported by Annet Gelink Gallery.
