Joerg von Mueller, photographer and painter, was born in Gettingen in 1950 as the eldest son of a theatrical artist and a doctor. He began his international career with education at the High School of Arts Berlin, where he studied painting, sculpture and architecture. There he subsequently worked for the architecture company Hans Scharoun on international projects.
His next stop brought him to Milan where he worked as an assistant in the international design studio of Gae Aulenti. Back in Germany Joerg von Mueller worked in a permanent position for Lutz Colani at Schloss Harkotten on the design of sanitary objects.

Again and again Joerg von Mueller moved behind the camera during these stations, and he discovered his passion for artistic and commercial photography, so that it became his focal point. For the studio Hamburg, he portrayed artists in all facets - but his intuition drove him soon to Paris, where he initially worked for Laurence Sackman as an assistant and was later listed as a freelance photographer at international agencies.
Joerg von Mueller's work has gained more and more international recognition, as evidenced by various solo and group exhibitions, among others. Center Georges Pompidou in Paris, Haus der Kunst and Lenbachhaus in Munich, Kunsthalle Malmö, Galleria d'arte moderna Bologna, Galerie Creatis Paris and the Anthologie Quartet for Messe Frankfurt.

After some stops in Germany, Joerg von Mueller found his home in Hamburg. Here he lives and works as a painter, sculptor and photographer. He spends several weeks a year in Paris and London.

A method for producing images by the action of light, which became widely known in 1839. Photography quickly became the basis for the expanding image industry that pushed the manually produced pictures, paintings and drawings into the background.

The avant-garde painting adopted photographic form elements, to ensure its painting validity. In the 1920s, many avant-garde painters turned to photography. With his photographs and photomontages, the American painter Man Ray developed new means of expression in modern art, the so-called "rayography".

The Pop Art of the 1960s varied and alienated the public photo with the help of technical means. The American pop artist Andy Warhol (1928 - 1987), with his images and image series created in this way, is the most well-known master of this art form.
