International fashion and advertising photographerAustrian photographer Elfie Semotan has become internationally known for her fashion and advertising photography. Her photographic approach has been guided from the beginning by the idea of capturing a person's personality. Elfie Semotan stages and constructs multifaceted stories within the image format. In doing so, she often uses the visual arts as a source of inspiration. In addition to art historical quotations, this passion is reflected in her many portraits of artists and studio photographs.
Six decades of Semotan's photographic cosmosOn the occasion of her 80th birthday, KUNST HAUS WIEN pays tribute to Elfie Semotan with a comprehensive retrospective. The exhibition Position and Pose spans six decades of her diverse artistic oeuvre and makes Semotan's photographic cosmos tangible as a multi-layered mesh of specific approaches to the medium of photography. Around 150 works are on display, ranging from well-known fashion and advertising photographs to haunting portraits, poetic landscape shots and still lifes.
