plattner & plattner Art Gallery
Sylvan Müller, born in Lucerne in 1973, lives out his great passion in photography: food and drink and the stories that can be told about them. For the Winter Exhibition, under the title “BEUTE” (English translation Bounty), Sylvan Müller combines restrained, unusually reduced still-life shots of alpine food products with reportage and landscapes. He deliberately leaves out the producers to avoid giving the products a face and thus can depict their own singular importance. It is only the landscape and reportage photographs which tell the story of the products’ home soil. The carefully curated selection of photographs, which illuminate the nutritional history of the Alpine region, have appeared in the multi-award-winning series of books “Das kulinarische Erbe der Alpen” (published in collaboration with Dominik Flammer).
