May I introduce: Henrik Purienne

Photographer Interview

Today I have a piece of summer for you. Henrik Purienne's photography. Studying in South Africa, he probably had the best conditions you can get as a photographer. He started out by shooting his friends or better to say his girlfriends. By now he also works for brands like American Apparel, Bershka, Adidas and many more. His photos are titled: Amanda, Michelle, Tamara, Krisi, Eddie, Becca ... I could keep on with this list forever. It is amazing how many beautiful girls Henrik seems to know. Natural beauties ala: tanned girls with blond beach hair and light, huge eyes. Most photos look very analogue and lid up with sunlight presenting an astonishing mood. Nothing seems to posed or on purpose. It makes you want jump up and book the next flight towards the beach.

Multi-talent Henrik Purienne is not only a photographer, but also started filming at the age of 9. He later actually studied directing, writing and cinematography. His short films have be screened at festivals and galleries around the world. He recently formed SOCIALIST", and independent film collective. Additionally he is also the founder and co editor of the 'bohemian futuristic' annual publication, Mirage Magazine. A 400+ paper fashion scrapbook distributed internationally by CoMag. Henrik was so kind to answer me a few questions about his so work, so here they come.
