The portofolio of Lina Scheynius is filled with raw emotion that feels spontaneous and unstaged. This is partially a result of the low lighting and unusual settings in combination with the movements and poses of the many models she has lensed.
The photos take the models from motel bedrooms to bodies of water, but each of them tells a story of distressed helplessness. This may be because the people she features in her shoots are anything but models. When asked who she likes to shoot, Scheynius replied, "Friends, loves, family, models, me. Anyone who can pretend that the camera isn't there."
Implications - Photography and art that naturally evokes raw emotion in an effortless manner appeals to consumer who look to these artforms as emotional outlets. Viewers appreciate art they can relate to in some fashion, and artists who are inspired by familiar sentiments and experiences accomplish this with ease.
