Earth. Remember the good times. The 11th issue of Scandinavia SSAW does just that with a cover story starring Hedvig Palm photographed by Benjamin Vnuk. Traces of the natural world are in abundance in this story as well as cover. As if to drive home realness of this theme, Hedvig appears on the cover with a pine sprig between her teeth. What could be an awkward posture for a portrait is made to appear effortless by Hedvig. Why shouldn’t this august model not let the severed outgrowth of a Scots pine balance in her mouth against her lower lip? Hedvig is that committed to the planet, its nature, its beauty, which is the very realness Scandinavia SSAW seeks to celebrate in this issue.
