Diary of a Hotel Room

Lina Scheynius, 27-year-old Swedish photographer shot one of her first fashion shoots for the Spring/Summer '09 issue of AnOther Magazine, with catwalk-queen and Givenchy-muse, Mariacarla Boscono. She used natural lights and a compact automatic camera to capture the strange mood of the Parisian hotel rooms for her intimate picture diary.

„I like hotels that aren’t standardised… they are intimate places, but also very anonymus.” - said Lina Scheynius about her obsession with hotel locations.

The atmosphere of the editorial is very spontaneous. Lina Scheynius shows us the hotel room in a very intimate aspect. An unknown space, that you own for a short time, that is your home for a period but not permanently, you can be anyone for the hotel room, it does not care. And after you left, it keeps your common secrets and memories.
