Sonja Mueller is a Berlin based prize-winning photographer and filmmaker who has worked extensively in the domain of sports and advertising. When she moved to London in 1994, Sonja dove into freelance editorial work, shooting portraits of musicians, artists and actors. The challenge of working with different personalities, exploring the nature of the internal character and external expression, immediately appealed to Sonja and she began to look for ways to hone her skills.
Sonja’s secret is that she is ravenously curious about people. She is fascinated with every individual’s enigma and, as such, approaches everyone with the same respect and openness, be they carpenter or politician or pop star. This approach puts Sonja’s subjects at ease and tends to create a mutual curiosity. Sonja’s dramatic but un-flouncy aesthetic adapts easily to different projects. Alongside her portrait work, she is constantly working on artistic projects.
