Between 2010 and 2012 Linda traveled to ten countries, documenting violence against women in the world in the project Cause of Death: Woman. In the beginning of 2012 the result was launched at www.causeofdeathwoman.com and in 2013 it was awarded the special recognition in the Swedish picture of the year. Her project, Life’s a blast, from Israel and Palestine, became a book in 2012, at the same time as it was exhibited in Stockholm, Sweden.
