Lina Scheynius

Lina Scheynius

Lina Scheynius produces stunning shots of nudes, still life, and intimate self portraits. Raw sexuality and naked bodies punctuate her work, often depicting her close friends, lovers, and herself. Her photography captures quiet moments of intimacy and hidden beauty that would usually remain unseen by the outside world, as if ripped from the pages of her diary. At times luminous, then hazy – always intense and thought provoking – her work reads like poetry, inviting the audience to discover and be captivated by her motifs. Her aesthetics convey undeniable truth, never shying away from vulnerability, revealing the delicate that deserves to be seen.
