Jürgen Müller

Roquebrun / France - December 2020


is Jürgen Müller, a retired IT consultant, Fairtrade expert, journalist, and amateur photographer, living in Berlin since 2023.

For more than 30 years I have been living and working in various countries on four continents. Among them are India, South Africa, UK, Peru and Cuba in which I stayed several years each.

WORK IN PROGRESS: This website will show some of the pictures I took during travelling and strolling around through the streets of the cities I lived in. In Cuba, I took extensive lessons with the professional photographer Joel Hernandez Marin. My favourite subjects are nature, street documentation, and ad hoc eye catchers. I used to work on a Nikon D800 and D5300. Today, I am on Lumix S5.

For the last 3 years before 2023 we prepared our move to Berlin. Due to the Covid pandemy it took longer than initially planned. We had to up sticks in Switzerland, our main base for the last 36 years. For me personally, not an easy decision...
