The City. The Trip. The Book
The first idea for my trip to Japan was to shoot some streetstyle
pictures: Manga people or Gothic Lolitas but in Asia, everything is much
faster than in Europe. My friend Timo, who lived in Japan at this time,
guided me to a place where an ever growing crowd of Rockabillys was
gathering. They played Rock ‘n’ Roll from a stereo and started to dance

Paul Müller-Rode was born in 1973 in Lindau at Lake Constance.
During his early professional career, first in Wiesbaden and then
Frankfurt, his skill as a photographer began taking shape.
He moved to Hamburg in 2001, to work as a photographer at the
Heinrich Bauer publishing house. In 2003 he was promoted to the
position of Chief Photographer & Studio Manager, responsible for
shooting covers and fashion editorials for magazines. At the same time,
he became increasingly interested in taking portraits of musicians and
subcultures. His drive to discover new experiences took him into
freelancing in 2007. This freedom has enabled him to capture a wealth of
eclectic, unusual and stimulating portraits from all over the world.
Paul Müller-Rode now lives and works in Hamburg.
