Elina Brotherus

Elina Brotherus

Elina Brotherus, born 1972 in Helsinki, Finland, works in photography and video. Her early work dealt with personal yet universal experiences, the presence and absence of love. In her series The New Painting (2000-2005), Elina Brotherus probed the relation of photography to art history and found inspiration in the iconography of classical painting. In Model Studies (2002-2008) and Artist and her model (2005-2011), she continued to explore the human figure within a landscape, and the gaze of an artist on his/her model. In her recent work 12 ans après (2011-2012) and Annonciation (2009-2013) she returns to the autobiographical approach, although more distanced than in her youth. Elina Brotherus lives and works in Finland and in France.
