The human body is the focus of the work by the acclaimed Finnish photographer Elina Brotherus, who uses herself as material. In this Louisiana Channel video she presents two video works describing the passing of time reflecting her own life situation. In this video she talks about her work and why she uses herself in her own work. How she was shocked when as a student she saw her first self portrait and it didn’t correspond with her own image of what she looked like. How she today is used to seeing her own portrait. She says she is very interested in the passing of time because of ageing and the fact that she - being a woman at forty - finds herself in an irreversible situation.
