“These books. My sketchbooks or notebooks. The space where i feel completely free to show my photographs the way i want to show it. A place where i can try out and experiment. Sometimes fall, sometimes surprise myself. Each book a testament of where i was and who i was when i made it.” —Lina Scheynius
