The editors of East Village Boys asked me to photograph the collaborative twin duo, The Brothers Mueller for their EVB interview. The brothers, or the twins, are Kirk and Nate Mueller. They are a Brooklyn based interactive design team. They create things like iPad apps for magazines, but they also make things like hand printed, heat sensitive wall paper. The Brothers’ aesthetic is ornate and refined in contrast to the generally raw, mechanical and masculine look of most digital art and design.
I shot them in their home and also at The Gowanus Print Lab where they were screen printing one of their wall paper designs. I also asked them to take me to their favorite place in NYC. It’s The Cloisters.
