Yogan Muller

Born January 1, 1987 in SW France, Yogan Muller is a photographer, scholar and instructor. He specializes in landscape photography. His science background exerts a profound influence on his work. For him, forging aesthetics attuned to the ecological crisis and mounting environmental pressures is paramount.

In October 2019, he joined the Counterforce Lab, a group of ecologically-minded visual artists and designers led by Pr. Dr. Rebeca Méndez at the UCLA Department of Design Media Arts (DMA). He started teaching as a Visiting Lecturer at DMA in January 2020.

In November 2018, he graduated from a practice-based PhD in landscape photography from ENSAV La Cambre and Université libre de Bruxelles, Belgium. In his work and fieldwork conducted in Iceland, he explored how photography made us enter the geological picture of the Anthropocene.

His work appears in the collections of Galerie Été 78 (Brussels, Belgium), Bibliothèque National de France (BnF, Paris, France) and the Obscura DAO Museum (Metaverse).
