His five published books include The Photograph Commands Indifference, The Amnesia Pavilions, and In Most Tides, An Island, which was shortlisted for the Aperture/Paris Photo Photobook of the Year. Muellner received a BA in comparative literature from Yale University and an MFA in photography from Temple University.
