Elina Brotherus & Kira Gluschkoff: What if? -series (2011-2012)
What if? is a collaborative venture between photographer Elina Brotherus (1972) and fashion photographer Kira Gluschkoff (1973), both internationally acclaimed and winners of several awards. They have photographed each other, posing the question: How does one person see another? They have also composed pictures together in which both appear in front of the camera. Brotherus and Gluschkoff sign their works jointly. This kind of collaboration between artists in which the works have two equal creators is rare in contemporary photography. The photographs are taken in places that mean something to them, in Paris and in Avallon in Burgundy. The nudity depicted in the photographs refers to the history of art but also makes them virtually timeless.
