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

Offering a rare glimpse inside the Hermit Kingdom, Guardian journalist and photographer Oliver Wainwright takes us on an architectural journey behind closed doors in the world’s most secretive country. From the mosaic-lined lobbies of Soviet-era health centers to the candy-colored interiors of brand new theaters, his photographs shine a spotlight on the reclusive regime’s ambition to “turn the whole country into a socialist fairyland.”
