Purienne Book

Vouyeuristic Escapism

„What is an average day like for Henrik Purienne?“ an interviewer once asked „I wouldn´t know,“ the South African photographer replied. Unless, of course, average can be defined as hedonistic, sun-drenched and beachside. Draped across a vintage car or an unmade bed or standing waist-high in an endless ocean. Purienne always seems to have his camera pointed away from real life and towards a fantasy of beautiful girls with nothing on their minds but fun. – Press Text/Prestel
