From the publisher: "Karin Müller's photography brilliantly interprets the landscape of Los Angeles from a new point of view - here landscape is displayed as a slice of the earth's surface, never purely representative of geography, region, or city. Landscapes are never stable - they evoke human absence as well as human presence, and shift with the spatio-temporal coordinates of human desire. Müller's L.A. is a world where the synthetic and global have overtaken the natural and the local, where the landscape has become a mercurial web of living dreams. Her images are both immediately real and eerily distant depictions of the vertiginous changes unraveling our everyday lives--she captures an era in which economic change is written on the streets, the bodies, and the transformation of just about every form of the built (and natural) environment."
