Elina Brotherus: Time

Jyväskylä Art Museum, 27th  October 2023 – 4th February 2024

Time presents an extensive selection of Finnish photographer Elina Brotherus’ works throughout her career. Working serially, Elina appears in most of her works, but rarely as herself. The presence of the human figure influences the mood of the works and sets the scale for the other subjects. The figure in the images can serve as a compositional element in the landscape, or as a reference to histories both real and imagined.
