PAARE 2 by Anja Müller

Cover of PAARE 2 by Anja MüllerAnja Müller’s recent photography project PAARE 2 (Couples) is now turned into a 192 pages long book showing intimate, powerful, exciting, poetic, tender and loving photos of 40 couples, gay and straight, young and old, having sex, hugging, kissing, teasing each other, or simply cuddling.

Nudity means to expose oneself, physically and mentally. It means to show personality and to feel the emotional presence of your partner. Müller’s pictures are full of affection and devotion. The photographer documents intimacy and fondness, not voyeurism. Her couples affect each other, the photographer and the viewer.

Anja Müller’s photography is placed in between enactment and authenticity. She produces a secure setting in which the couples feel comfortable. All kisses are real kisses. All physical contact is real contact, which the couples chose to engage in.

The viewers don’t know how long the couples have been dating. They don’t know how old they are, where they are from, how they met, or what they do for a living. Nevertheless they get the feeling that they do know the couples and that they understand how they function. They can feel their love for each other.

Sometimes melancholic, sometimes euphoric, sometimes passionate, humorous, or pragmatic, set in a bedroom, a kitchen, or a corridor: Anja Müller’s pictures reveal that there are many ways to love each other, physically and emotionally.
