These books. My sketchbooks or notebooks. The space where I feel completely free to show my photographs the way
I want to show it. A place where I can try out and experiment.
Sometimes I fall, sometimes I surprise myself. Each book a testament of where I was and who I was when I made it.
Lina Scheynius, born in the 1980s, has relentlessly recorded with her film camera the scenes of her life, her friends, her loves.
Taken between 1991 and 2018, these photographs offer us an unprecedented insight into the life of a 21st-century woman.
Between 2007 and 2019 she organized this intimate archive into 11 self-published books which have received international acclaim.
Against a backdrop of social media and the digital self, Lina Scheynius imposes a sensitivity of a rare intensity, accessible here for the first time in its entirety.
