Artists & Portraits

The highly successful fashion photography icon Elfie Semotan is set to pay Vienna a visit soon. With her she’ll bring portraits of artists such as Daniel Richter, Franz West or Alex Katz as well as close-ups of studio situations.


The private view for her exhibition at Galerie Gabriele Senn will take place on 12 November.


As figurehead of the Austrian art scene Semotan made a name for herself in Austria with her controversial photos for the Palmers poster series “Trau dich doch (Dare to do it)” as early back as the late 1970s.

She is one of the top photographers in the fashion industry; she has shot for magazines including Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar and for a long time collaborated with Helmut Lang.


Semotan currently works on numerous projects, among them several books, one of which will include on overview of her work.
