Living the Light -

Robby Müller

Robby Müller's work has been compared to painters like Vermeer and Hopper, other masters of light. Even when his films are finished, his images keep on moving. The light never fades because he always creates space for human emotions to come into the light. Living the Light is the story of that light.
