LINA...

I know you don't need me to tell you about Lina Scheynius. If this was the kind of blog that relied solely on other people's pictures for content, it might be hard not to illustrate every post with one of her pictures and this is a fine excuse to do just that. Visiting her exhibition at Viktor Wynd Fine Art in Mare St on Saturday to see her photos in physical reality felt like meeting internet friends for the first time: familiar and intimate, yet strange.

I think I can safely say she's my favourite photographer working currently. I love the personal diary element of her work and her non techy any camera + any film + available light approach.

{The exhibition runs until 25 April.}
