Getaway is a photobook that plays out in a parallel universe a little closer to the sun. The Canary Islands – almost exclusively a holiday destination for more than 3 million western tourists a year – is the backdrop of this performance. Five Danish photographers have been on a photographic expedition to this lost and blazing world and the book is a collection of images they brought back with them.

In this spectacle you have paella, paradise and sausage of all sizes. An island that loves you quickly and unconditionally – and the love is mutual and generous. You get peace and escape on the island of speedos, sunshine and sex on the beach. You will be seduced, tempted and betrayed.

Getaway is a about a place where we enjoy, dream, escape, recover and confront the absence of everyday life. That fake reality we call vacation.

Ulrik Jantzen, Kasper Witte Larsen, Emil Jakobsen, Simon Caspersen and Kasper Kristoffersen are daily colleagues in the photo agency Büro Jantzen. The bureau was founded by Ulrik Jantzen, who graduated from the School of Journalism in Denmark, and who, over the past 15 years, has made his mark on the photographic scene in Denmark. The bureau has exhibited at galleries and museums in Denmark and abroad, won a number of photographic awards and published several photobooks.
