Born in Cologne in 1966, Jörg Müller studied visual communication and photo design at the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts. After graduating, he began his career as an independent photographer in Hamburg in 1991, where he has lived ever since. After initial assignments for Greenpeace and the magazine SPORTS, commissioned work followed for print publications such as DER SPIEGEL, stern, Geo, National Geographic, Mare, Playboy and others. In 2007, Jörg Müller was awarded the Hansel-Mieth Prize for his reportage on Chinese textile workers who produce fashion in Italy so that it can be sold under the label "Made in Italy".
His commercial photography focuses on science and research as well as employer branding and business portraits.
In his freelance work, he particularly pursues themes with an intercultural background, which are repeatedly shown at exhibitions. In 2019, this was the series "5x Germany around the world", which was exhibited with great success at the Foreign Office in Berlin and is currently touring Germany and Europe as a travelling exhibition of the Goethe-Institut. Since 2021, Jörg Müller has been represented by the international representative office SEEN@CLAIRbyKahn, through which individual photos of his are also offered on the worldwide art platform Artsy.
