"an inverse constellation, seen only from space: solitary figures, scattered over the continents, enraptured by vanishing points, alone in front of the oceans …

Nicholas Muellner's picture textbook traces changing pictures of exile and loneliness in the digital age. Seductive, disorienting, informative, and allegorical, In Most Tides an Island is simultaneously a vision of contemporary post-Soviet queer life, a meditation on loneliness and desire, and an investigation into the nature of photography and poetry in a world consumed by cruelty. longing, resignation and hope.

This work grew out of two very different impulses: witnessing the lives of homosexuals locked up in provincial Russia and composing the Gothic story of a lonely woman on a remote tropical island. Along the way, these disparate activities, one based on documentation, the other on invention, unexpectedly converged. Shot along the coasts of the Baltic, the Caribbean and the Black Sea, distant landscapes were found at the rocky point of Alone. From that perspective, they ask: what intimacy and loneliness mean in a radically alienated but hyper-connected worldo?

In Most Tides, an island defies literary and photographic conventions, the collapse of portrait and landscape, documentary and fiction, metaphor and description in the distinct form of the artist's hybrid narrative. This work of shapeshifting is united by the voice of the wandering narrator and the unexpected visual echoes between these remote landscapes. A mysterious stream of faceless but expressive online profile pictures further links the divergent stories. These anonymous figures serve as an emotional semaphore, pointing across genres and geographies and between language and image.

With a five-year history, In Most Tides an Island is the long-awaited follow-up to Muellner's critically acclaimed image textbooks The Amnesia Pavilions 2011 and The Photograph Commands Indifference 2009. Like previous works, this book deeply intertwines language and image in a hybrid form original to photographic literature. In Most Tides, an island questions the fundamental natures of documentary and metaphor, the emotional functions of photography, and the always lively but unbridgeable space between words and images.
