About the title:

In the words of French co-founder, Olivier Zahm: "We launched Purple Prose in the early 1990's without any means, and without any experience, because we wanted to make a magazine that was radically different. We wanted to support the artists around us that no one else supported, much less talked about. It would be a form of opposition of our own, different from the critical jargon of [post-war Bay Boomers]. From a visual standpoint, we represented a break from '80s imagery (like Richard Avedon's photography for Versace, for example). From an artistic standpoint, the artists of the early 90's were rising up against art as capital fetish. Purple is the portrait...of those who embody their times. At the same time, it's a portrait of myself and Elein Fleiss, our ideas, our lives, and our aesthetics." Purple has evolved from being counter at the edges, to influencing from the top. Each volume is thick and chock-a-block with photography and interviews from the planet's most magnetic players.
