Getaway play out in a parallel universe a little closer to the sun; The Canary Islands, almost exclusively a holiday destination for more than three million western tourists a year. Five Danish photographers have been on an expedition to this shiny new world to gain evidence of its well-being. Here we see bodies in all shapes and sizes, deep canyons, wild nature, sandy beaches, sunburns, nudism and alhohol. A recreational mix where one come to enjoy, dream, escape, recover and confront the absence of everyday life. That temporary reality we call vacation.
