First edition of 500 signed and numbered copies. Lina Scheynius was born in Vänersborg in southeast Sweden in 1981 and is currently based in London, She became a photographer after a career in modelling.
‘I picked up a lot from growing up in an environment where I had access to cameras and photographic books. My dad took loads of pictures of us, and watching the family slides with the projector was always amazingly fun for me. And after that, I started modelling and saw how most professional fashion photographers work – and I learnt how I don’t want to work.’
Since 2008, she has published a book a year featuring candid photographs of daily life, self-portraits, and photographs of intimate and quiet moments shared with friends and partners.
