The first book specifically devoted to the Scandinavian works of the Italian photographer, Massimo Leardini. Presented in a large format clothbound hardcover book, Scandinavian by Massimo Leardini features photoshoots with, amongst others, 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 and become one of the most sought-after photographers in Scandinavia.
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.
