Copies of the classic "New Objective" photo book "Angels in Fall," originally published in 2001 and thought to be out of print, are now available again. In it, vast, rational parking lots loom into focus, the smoggy grid of a Los Angeles neighborhood evaporates into the horizon and a man finds shelter from a rainstorm under an orange plastic sheet in an industrial wasteland The landscapes of the respected German-born, Los Angeles-based photographer Karin Apollonia Muller evoke human presence and absence, and the spatiality of human desire at a time when all things synthetic, flexible and global have overtaken their more organic and local counterparts. According to Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's important survey, "The Photobook Volume II," Muller "shows non-place rather than place, an environment that has an ethereal, other-worldly quality. It is a city familiar to us from moving images, yet in her hands it emerges both fresh and strange. This is the most convincing photographic representation of Los Angeles since that of Ed Ruscha in the 1960s and Robert Adams' "Los Angeles Spring" of 1986." And Christopher Knight of the "Los Angeles Times" wrote, "A more apposite public portrait of this city would be hard to imagine."
