Elfie Semotan (*1941)
Elfie Semotan and model present Serge Kirchhofer glasses model 457, Austria, Vienna, ca. 1969
Here the photographer herself poses with a fellow model for one of her early photo assignments, a fashion shoot for Serge Kirchhofer Eyewear Designs. Semotan had been modeling for this client since the early 1960s. Here she takes on a dual role as model and photographer.
Her sensitive eye and her experience from her previous career as a model make her a highly sought-after fashion photographer in the course of the 1970s, a profession that she will pursue very successfully internationally for the next decades, making her one of the most sought-after Austrian fashion photographers.
