Helsinki-based photographer and video artist Elina Brotherus puts creative energy into both landscape portraiture and out-of-the-ordinary model studies. Brotherus often includes herself as an element of her photographs, with her back turned to the viewer as she faces the scenery. The juxtaposition of artist as model and natural beauty causes the viewer to look harder at both. Also of interest are her series of dancers, as well as the model studies that are almost still lifes rather than portraits.
