Konrad Rufus Müller is regarded as one of the most-renowned portrait photographers. He is based in Königswinter, Germany, and still works around the world.
Having portrayed all German chancellors from Adenauer to Merkel in a way that is reserved to the fewest, Müller soon became known as „The Chancellor Photographer“. His unique approach to photography, including nothing more than an old Rolleiflex camera, led to stunning, yet believable pictures of world’s most acclaimed celebrities.
Ranging from The Dalai Lama over Gerhard Schröder to Wladimir Putin, Müller’s ability to carve a truly honest portrait out of an indestructible rock yields his reputation. His endurance to wait for the perfect moment instead of creating it artificially is what separates good pictures from masterpieces.
Müller has published more than 20 books and a plethora of exhibitions has been held to his name and work. He has crafted over 3000 unique and iconic photographs by hand, which still are in his possession.
