During its twenty-year history, Purple magazine has gained cult status and its editor, Olivier Zahm, has become an international celebrity in the contemporary art and fashion worlds. Notorious for obsessively documenting his life and surroundings in photographs, which he shares daily on his magazine's blog, Purple diary, Olivier Zahm said to the New York Times in 2010 that "even in the bedroom I have my camera, I sleep with my camera, I have lunch with my camera, I got dinner with my camera." This book-the first to show- case Zahm's own photographs-is a visual diary of his lifestyle and aesthetic world, combining his nightlife pictures with erotic nudes, fashion, landscapes, and architecture. Olivier Zahm Diary defines a photographic style in a digital era of constant flux, blurring the gap between private and public life, and personal and professional picture.
