by Elfie Semotan

  • Hardcover
    $48.10
PUBLISHED: 1st September 2010
ISBN: 9783777432915
ANNOTATION:
Over a thirty-year career, Austrian-American photographer Elfie Semotan has assembled a kaleidoscopic collection of portraits and studio stills from her encounters with other artists, from Georg Baselitz to the Chapman Brothers, Marina Abramovic to Louise Bourgeois. The fact that Semotan's "models"—many of whom have since become international stars—are in fact friends, acquaintances, or even significant others has allowed her to capture truly stunning photographs of prominent figures in the art world, photos whose intimacy and comfort reflect both her own mood and those of her subjects. Semotan is a celebrated artist in both Europe and the United States working across a wide range of photographic styles. Many of her images are famous on their own without the public knowing who took them—this new book offers art fans a chance to put together the pieces, to see these portraits as a single, compelling body of work.
