The Finnish photographer Elina Brotherus deals with her own biography, the landscape genre, and art history in her photographs and films. She explores the possibilities of photographic self-dramatization while frequently referring to icons of nineteenth- and twentieth-century painting or, as she does in her recent works, to contemporary art from the 1960s and 1970s. Great sensitivity, formal mastery, and accomplished perfectionism characterize her visual language. She works in series, avoiding large-format single shots.
