"I think he's like a Dutch int erior painter\, like Vermeer or De Hooch\, who was born in the wrong centur y." - Jim Jarmusch on Robby Mü\;ller

\n

In Ed van der Elsken Archives\, Annet Gelink Gallery proudly presents&n bsp\;Color &\; Motion. Esteemed cinematographer Robby Mü\;l ler  \;and his wife Andrea were approached to make a selection of works from Ed van der Elsken's archive to form a show\; however\, the project qu ickly evolved into a meeting between Robby Mü\;ller's Polaroids and mos tly early work by Van de Elsken. Presenting never before exhibited works by Mü\;ller as intriguiging prints of Polaroid  \;and lesser-known ph otographs by Van der Elsken\, \;Color &\; Motion \;expl ores the many faceted relationship between light\, camera and photographer. What does their photographic eye register when they travel round the world \, camera to hand\, or when they experiment in private settings?

\n

Having worked with Wim Wenders\, Lars von Trier \, Jim Jarmusch and Steve McQueen amongst others\, Mü\;ller is widely a cclaimed for his distinctive style and philosophical approach. Rather than relying on the possibilities offered by technology\, Mü\;ller's startin g point was always the story being told and the emotions involved. His work \, on films such as \;Paris\, Texas \;and \;Down b y Law\, has been praised for complementing and shaping narratives thro ugh light\, color and camera angles.

\n

Mü\;ller would often take Polaroids in moments in between his work on s et\, as studies in light and composition. As such\, they mainly document hi s hotel rooms or the abstract patterns in urban landscapes he came upon dur ing his walks through foreign cities. He would seek out lines in the typica l square Polaroid format and find movement in light through the interplay o f reflection and shadow. Mü\;ller also often photographed complex situa tion\, such as the 'blue hour' where artificial and natural light meet. The re is a clear line to be drawn therefore between the Polaroids and the film s Mü\;ller made\, with Mü\;lller here establishing painterly tablea us through the instant medium of Polaroid. These stilled moments and compos itions display the working mind and eye of Mü\;ller.

\n

The selection from Van der Elsken's oeuvre show Van der Elsken's lesser-known works. The photographs on view can also be seen as e xperiments\; we see Van der Elsken exploring the possibilities of capturing movement or a particular atmosphere\, or documenting the world around him in color. While the early black and white photographs tend towards abstract ion\, his color photographs possess a to us unknown array of color from a b y-gone era.

\n

Color &\; Motion&n bsp\;can be seen as a dialogue between the two individuals\, who each in their own way have become known for using light and film to capture and present the world around us. The showpresents the visual back and forth bet ween the two\, on questions of light\, motion\, angle and color. Moreover\, in true Mü\;llerian style the exhibition argues that personal vision d irects technological ability.
