VANDALS – THE BOOK TRAILER

By - Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

VANDALS – The Book (Trailer) from Ruttkowski;68 on Vimeo.

After eight years of journeys around the globe, Nils Müller presents ‘Vandals’, his second book of photography after his 2009 debut publication ‘Blütezeit’. ‘Vandals’ takes the illegal and dangerous activity on 192 pages to a more personal level, one that is more detailed and yet, more abstract, too. The photos bear witness to the elaborate level of planning required to carry out the acts. They reveal team spirit as well as heightened emotions and tension, as trainwriters attempt to evade motion detectors and security cameras while scaling barbed wire fences. If you like to order the limited edition of ‘Vandals’ (different cover, limited to 500 copies, signed), send an email to: info@ruttkowski68.com For the normal version, please contact: www.publikat.de/212-0-Vandals.html ‘Vandals’ is divided into ten chapters. While four of them feature images of various cities such as London, Berlin and Amsterdam, each of the other six chapters focuses on a different city: Paris, Milan, Seoul, Bucharest, Caracas and New York. Nils Müller is a former graffiti artist who taught himself photography to immortalize his work before it was cleaned up by authorities. It wasn’t long before he realized he wanted to show more than just the defacement of public structures. His photographs elevate graffiti into a sophisticated visual language that thrills both because of its illicit nature and aesthetic value.
