We are proud to present the first book specifically devoted to the Scandinavian works of the Oslo based photographer, Massimo Leardini. Presented in a large format clothbound hardcover book, the First Edition is limited to just 440 numbered copies. Beautifully produced by the legendary Swedish printers, Fälth & Hässler, using Triotone offest printing on Arctic Volume Ivory paper, Scandinavian by Massimo Leardini features shoots with a host of models including Iselin Steiro, Marianne Schröder, Viktoria Winge, Jenny Sinkaberg and Ophelie Rupp.
Originally from Cattolica, in the Italian Province of Rimini, Massimo Leardini has lived and worked in Norway since 1987, becoming one of the most sought-after photographers in Scandinavia. His work, which has received numerous awards and prizes, appears regularly in leading independent magazines, including Smug, S-Magazine, Carl’s Cars and Personae.
Rooted in the classical tradition, Leardini uses his unique aesthetic sensibility to capture the human body in harmony with the timeless Scandinavian landscape. Despite the seeming purity and innocence of these candid moments, a quiet sense of melancholy pervades and seems to hint at a deeper undercurrent of Nordic angst.
