Publisher's Description

Primitive by Massimo Leardini presents an unconventional study of the sculptural female nude. The result of the latest collaboration between the photographer and his long-term muse, the Norwegian actress Viktoria Winge.

Conventional landscape settings have been banished to be replaced only by a sense of place; dappled light penetrating deep within the Urskog (primordial forest). Nude portraiture, and the temptation to capture beauty, have been outlawed in favour of a study of essential femininity abstracted into flesh, hair and bone.

The female body, but not as we know it. Contorted body parts reassembled into impossible compositions that create surprising abstract sculptural forms. Recognisable as human, yet simultaneously strange, ambiguous and primitive.
