Mirage Magazine was founded independently in 2009 by Henrik Purienne and Frank Rocholl as a 400 page fashion and culture magazine inspired by the photographic aesthetic and hedonistic culture of the 1960s and 1970s. Subject matter relates to timeless aesthetics in the fields of architecture, art and design interweaved with visions of forgotten utopias, unsung heroes and cinematic stagings. Editorial content has a documentary feel and often reflects the personal relationship of photographer and muse, with key themes being summer, sun, youth, freedom and rebellion.
Mirage No.5 - Voyage Lumière.
Voyage Lumière. Sometimes we need to decide how we want to travel: through space, or through light. Travel, for example, to the sheer luminosity of childhood summers, to the majesty of the sun setting in the Mediterranean. This issue of Mirage explores how light is in a constant flux. We can’t know a place alone, we know it under a certain light, and that changes everything. This issue of Mirage is an invitation to appreciate not how bodies and landscapes are illuminated, but rather how light manifests itself in a much more profound way. A sensorial journey that will take us to Capri, Formentera or Bali, to glimpses of the present made from bright bits of the past, or of dreams we had forgotten.
