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 of her youth.

Elina Brotherus lives and works in Finland and in France. She has an MA degree in Photography from the University of Art and Design Helsinki (now Aalto University) and a MSc in Chemistry from the University of Helsinki. She has been awarded the Prix Niépce of Gens d'Image, France (2005), the Finnish State Prize for Photography (2008), the Scandinavian Carnegie Award's Young Artist’s Scolarship (2004), the Prix Mosaïque of Centre National de l'Audiovisuel, Luxembourg (2001) and the Fotofinlandia Award (2000).

Elina Brotherus has published four monographs, including, most recently, Artist and her model in 2012. She has exhibited since 1997 in institutions such as  ARTER, Istanbul; Biennale of Sydney; Hasselblad Center, Gothemburg; Istanbul Biennial; Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark; MAXXI, Rome; the National Art Center, Tokyo; the Photographers' Gallery, London; Saatchi Gallery, London, to name a few.
