Fashion Photography by Lina Scheynius

Lina Scheynius

Lina Scheynius is a Swedish photographer. She shows her work in series as pages of an open diary. Using her camera, Lina Scheynius contorts the banal and everyday into something magical and extraordinary re-presenting truth as fantasy. Whether a soot encrusted cityscape or a girl sitting on a faded chintz-soaked bed, we find ourselves aspiring to live in her rose colored world. What is most intriguing about Scheynius’ galaxy is the total lack of nostalgia as these pictures are not about saving or preserving but about processing and releasing. They embrace the moment with a blind eye to past or future generously giving her subjects permission to be who they are without a hint of self-conscious performance or role play.
