Lina Scheynius:

I am currently working on a new photo book. All i think about is this book. The images that i have selected for it, this one is one of them, have been covering my bedroom floor for the past two weeks. They are the first thing i see when i wake up in the morning and the last thing i see when i go to sleep. I have even started dreaming about them. Last night my artist friend Rachel and I were up till two in the morning in my kitchen changing the order of the images of the book, and grinding seashells for an etching project she's currently working on. This is going to be the fourth in my series of self published books. I made the first one in 2008 - I wanted to make a pocket book version of a photobook, something affordable and light that one could bring along wherever one wanted to, and since then i've managed to make a new one each year. Making these little books is one of my favorite parts of my job.
