Former Model Lina Scheynius from Sweden started photography in 2002. Nowadays she works as a photographer for magazines, publishes photo books and has exhibitions in various countries. From January 26 to April 15, 2017, Christophe Guye Galerie in Zurich shows the second solo exhibition of Scheynius pictures.
The 33 year-old’s subjective approach to depicting faces, bodies and nature combined with a snapshot look establishes her exceptional aesthetic. The remarkable intimacy she puts in every picture seizes the observer. Still, the self-taught photographer leaves the message of her artworks open to interpretation. Nudity and sexuality are present in many of her works but in an artistic, unobtrusive way. Scheynius’ new photo book called “09“ will be released in the first week of February. Pre-orders can be placed on her website.
