the young talent Lina Scheynius

The highly celebrated talent Lina Scheynius will present her first European solo exhibition at Christophe Guye Galerie in Zurich from next week.

The young Swedish model-turned-photographer captures scenes from her daily life, exploring and observing friends, lovers, and herself. She shows images there are arrestingly honest, raw and intimate. And with a strong sexual undertone she brings something fresh to the art world and challenges traditional theories of the female role as the inactive and objectified.

In September her fifth self-published book will be released and you can pre-order it already now from her website.

Lina Scheynius’s first solo exhibition in Europe opens at Christophe Guye Galerie on August 30 until October 19 in Zurich.

Each year since 2008 Swedish photographer Lina Scheynius has published a book of her photographs culled from her personal world. Pocket sized and lightly bound, they are designed to be carried around, a daily inspiration.

Her fourth book is out now and with half already gone, Twin recommends getting in there quick if you want to purchase a bit of beauty straight up and out of Lina’s life.

Lina’s book is available here.


Northern exposure

Photographer Lina Scheynius delves into her past for her third book, 03, to a time when her photographs were intended for her eyes only.

While Scheynius is increasingly in demand as a fashion photographer, her personal photographs are, in contrast, a hypnotic hymn to sex, love and uninhibited freedom. Although the photographer’s previous books have been visual diaries detailing her recent life between London, Paris and Sweden, this time around she’s compiled a book of images taken between 1991, when she was just ten-years-old, and early 2007, just before her first magazine commission.

It’s an embryonic collection of pictures, revealing the same ethereal beauty, light and intimacy for which she has become known.  Another chapter in her book of life.

Lina Scheynius’ 03 is available here
