Friday Fry Up: Lina Scheynius


With a bold but delicate sensuality, Lina Scheynius’ luminous photographs are distinctly genuine. Whether photographing her friends, her lovers, or herself, each moment she captures is imbued with a tenderness. In the intensely intimate self-portraits that she shares online, she seamlessly meshes selfie culture with the tradition of the female nude. By authoring such raw portraits, Scheynius makes voyeurism a subjective act. Like her photographs, her publications—the newest, “08”, was published in February 2016—feel as though they exist for each viewer individually. See more of her work at
