Jeenu Mahadevan


Jeenu from Oslo is a promising model who walked for Hermès and Alexander McQueen in Paris in the summer of 2017.

Does he have one Oslo memory that stands out? 

– That must be one of the first times I celebrated the National Day in Oslo with friends. I grew up in the suburb at Veitvet and wasn’t very familiar with the city centre. My friend and I thought we could walk from the Central Station to Majorstua in 10 minutes. We ended up getting lost, running after the Majorstua tram to find our way.

Jeenu was photographed at Kjærlighetsstien («the love trail»), a walking path in idyllic surroundings at Fredensborg. In the background, you can see the medieval church Gamle Aker kirke. And Jeenu does appreciate the city’s green spaces: 

– Frogner Park is my favourite place in Oslo. It’s super central, and the go-to place when you just want a nice spot to sit and enjoy the day and hang out with your buddies. 

– The beaches along Bygdøy have got to be the nicest part of Oslo. The coastline of Bygdøy is ridiculously beautiful, and the surroundings are really nice for hiking.
