“No small number of the photographs are Faltenwürfe in the most literal sense: a sleep-dented pillow; a square of netting strung between two tripods; a bolt of translucent black fabric hung like a theater curtain in the middle of the woods, its hem not quite reaching the ground. And, of course, the flow and fall of cloth – the celebration of fabric as an artistic medium, complete unto itself – is by no means missing from Elfie Semotan’s work for the great fashion magazines. ” – John Wray
