Playful, cryptic, existential—the latest photographic worlds of Elina Brotherus.

Diary-like self-portraits, contemplative landscapes, and playful still lifes—Elina Brotherus is constantly searching for new possibilities in photography. This lavishly illustrated volume with related essays pursues her latest developments. Here the Finnish photographer combines a keen intellect with humorous lightness and technical precision with joyous spontaneity. Elina Brotherus has established an international reputation for her self-portraits—in fact, she can be seen in almost all her photographic and video works. This volume highlights her works produced since 2016, which surprise as much as delight. Her approach to Fluxus, John Baldessari, Francesca Woodman, and W. G. Sebald is at times a cryptic tribute, and at others a critical revision.
