The booked called Artist and Her Model has been really inspiring. The book was photographed by Finish photographer Elina Brotherus. I love how the book is a “meditative journey, a diary and a reflection” of the artist herself.
“The work gathered in the book documents the time wrap from 1996 to 2011. The story is told not in time, but rather in fragments. She works in self-portiture, sometimes bringing people who have special place in her life. Elina’s photographs depict relationship with people, love, disappointments, search, pain and how they shift/change over the years. While the images are constructed, she is completely present in every moment, living/experiencing her life. ”
