“Missing Person” is a photo series shot by Henrik Purienne between 2001 and 2007 where he would “religiously” visit Milnerton Flea Market on Sundays. The photos depict a world of their own, filled with characters and their random belongings creating a unique narrative and universe with each vendor’s homemade stores. Located outside of Cape Town, the market included many vendors that were also subjects of Purienne’s Sony PC-1 camcorder home videos.
