South African born photographer Henrik Purienne‘s body of work is glorious – sun-drenched candid images of lithe beach babes with a hazy, wistful feel. They also draw inspiration from the city Los Angeles where Henrik now resides, plenty of azure pools and flaxen-haired, scantily-clad girls – definitely some photos to check out to get you inspired for a summer holiday or long-term trip to warmer climes.
His images have a distinct 70s feel that is totally en vogue right now and has led Purienne to shoot campaigns for American Apparel and Kitsune Maison. If you want to check out more of his work he’s also creator of Mirage Magazine whose ethos is hedonism… right up the street of a round-the-world traveller.
