Henrik Purienne, born and bred in Worcester, South Africa brings a golden retro glow to female figurative photography. Sexy, but never sleazy. Titillating but never too rude.
You can tell that Purienne got his hands on a bunch of Scope magazines from the 80s as a young kid and somehow never got over them. His retro, gold-tinted images are somehow timeless, referencing a time when sexiness wasn’t about showing as much as possible – it was about showing the least amount needed to make you want to see more.
