Like a dream, Scott Mueller’s photographs exist within an uncanny plane of our waking reality, nostalgic and haunted, a world we almost recognize.
Known for his mammoth 20x24 Polaroid camera and his use of alternative photography techniques, the San Antonio fine art photographer “explores the boundaries of the photographic image including its manipulation and its effects on our assumptions of what a photograph means to us.”
His current techniques include infrared imagery shot in the Atchafalaya Swamp Basin and Gumoil printing, a process that combines oil paint and the image.
Each piece is a carefully planned fusion of historic photographic process and rapidly advancing digital technology, begging the curious viewer to contemplate this alternate reality. Brian St. John curates the exhibition.
