Peter Lindburgh has a winning formula that goes a little something like this: beautiful young model, seasoned male actor, cinematic romance.

It’s a romance in setting, and styling, and mood. In a few frames we can only glimpse snippets of a relationship, but in Lindbergh’s cinematic worlds, they always seem equal parts tumultuousness and tenderness.
With an inkling of 1960s styling by Nicoletta Santoro, this particular affair out West appears in the January 2012 issue of Vogue China. You can view more at the gallery above.
