Between blind faith and curiosity; between expertise and creativity; between bias and openness; between experience and epiphany; between ambition and passion; between an old today and a new tomorrow. Massimo Leardini's latest book presents a series of intimate portraits of Norwegian women; Iben Akerlie, Ida Daugaard, Iselin Vollen Steiro, Jenny Amina Sinkaberg and Viktoria Winge.
Rooted in the classical tradition, Leardini uses his unique aesthetic sensibility to capture the female form 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 angst.
This edition has been sold out since 2018 but due to demand, we are releasing a very limited number of original books from our archives to make them available to collectors. These will be the final copies available and there will be no further editions.
