Selected works by Elina Brotherus
Alexander Zaxarov
May 13, 2020

Elina Brotherus is a prolific photographer who was born in Helsinki in 1972 and now also spends much of her time in Paris.

For 20 years, Elina Brotherus has employed her own body as a subject, exploring both personal and universal experiences — from the presence and absence of love, to her continued exploration of the human figure within natural and manmade landscapes.

She was trained in analytic chemistry before she decided to take up photography. Her early works, rooted in the documentary tradition, involved self-portraiture but more recently her interests have been dominated by formal concerns. While her works provoke conceptual questions, the artist insists that her interests are primarily visual.
