In the collective exhibition "STRAIGHT FLUSH" Linn Schroeder shows her new work, "My little sister". "She is my sister and she has a knife. She says, in school it would be better ". This song line, probably the single hit from the group "Spektacoolär" goes through my head when I photograph my sister. (Linn Schroeder)
Because of an eating disorder and depression, the younger sister of the photographer was a long time in a rehabilitation clinic. At the weekly visits they always made a photo. The images were for the sister as a kind of mirror in which she found shocked at how sad she looks. Even after the time in rehabilitation, the sisters continued the series of portraits. It shows not only the portrait of the individual but also their relationship to each other.
