Rooted in the classical tradition, Massimo 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.
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. His work, which has received numerous awards and prizes, appears regularly in leading independent magazines, including Carl’s Cars, S-Magazine, Smug and Personae.
