Ultra Beach: Henrik Purienne
The photographs of South African photographer Henrik Purienne offer high-fashion 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, rolling in the sand, or standing waist-high in an endless ocean…
Firing questions with Purienne:
What’s most important to you?
“Everything. And nothing. But nothing in between”

JamaisVu is an anthology of four issues of Mirage Magazine, a collaboration between Henrik Purienne and art director Frank Rocholl. The newest edition of Mirage Magazine, Voyage Lumière, is a “sensorial journey that will take us to Capri, Formentera or French Polynesia, to glimpses of the present made from bright bits of the past, or of dreams we had forgotten”

In PAPER magazine: “I like to at least imagine that there is a return to simplicity. To content over form. To a DIY approach to creation. The return of the auteur.”
