Iris Brosch

Iris Brosch is a Paris-based photographer whose work is characterized by its ethereal and poetic quality. Born in Vienna, Austria, she started her career as a fashion model before transitioning to photography in the 1990s. She specializes in fashion, nude and art photography, videos, and performances.

Brosch has been recognized for her work with numerous awards and accolades, including the Prix de la Photographie Paris in 2014. Artnet added Brosch to their list of the “Seven Most Important Contemporary Photographers.”

Her video “Pure Heaven” was presented at the 2002 "Differing Views" exhibition in Vienna. It shows women in dreamlike scenarios, a common motif in Brosch’s videographic pieces. Since 2005, multiple videos and performances by Brosch have been presented at the Venice Biennale. She created the multimedia performance “Divinita,” inspired by tableaux vivants in which she fuses different artistic disciplines such as photography, fashion, music, plastic art, and dance, into one performance to create a “total feminine work of art.”

In 2009, she presented the performance “Erotic Enlightenment,” followed by the video “Prélude” in 2010. From 2012 to 2015, Brosch added to her body of work with the creation of “In Paradisum,” “Women & Nature Near Extinction,” “L'Uomo,” and “Vita,” for which David Vostell composed the soundtracks. In June 2011, Brosch was invited again to the Venice Biennale to show her performance “Requiem for Women,” a reminiscence of the violence, persecution, and repression inflicted on all women since time immemorial.

Both her fashion and portrait photos have been published in Vogue Italy, L’Uomo Vogue, Marie Claire Germany and United Kingdom, Elle France, The New York Times, Harper's Bazaar, and many other magazines.
