Elfie Semotan, Photographer
The documentary Elfie Semotan, Photographer by Joerg Burger is a portrait of the internationally renowned Austrian photographer Elfie Semotan. Living in New York and Vienna, she has been working successfully at the intersection of art, fashion and advertising photography for more than five decades and looks back on an impressive career between Europe and the USA. Many of her sophisticated visual arrangements have become legendary. Semotan's work is characterised by her strong personality and continuous resistance to the mainstream.
Joerg Burger's film is a portrait of a great artist and a tribute to the passion of photography itself. The still creative Elfie Semotan gives insight into her work and life and it also becomes clear how much the city of New York has influenced her career and her work.
