Coconuts is the first and only printing by French photographer Jean-Daniel Lorieux. Scarce and very sought, it has become one of its rarest and most prized editions. Do you need any reason? It is a great book! With awesome paradisiacal settings, clear waters and white sands, radiant, bright and saturated colours, beautiful women in the sun (a young Brooke Shields too) and whimsical compositions. A glamour shoot framed by neon airbrush patterns. His personal aesthetic and dreamlike narrative inspired the 2018 campaing "Écran total" (same name of another iconic book) by designer Amélie Pichard in collaboration with Lorieux.
