First edition. Karl de Haan was born in 1929 in Java, Indonesia to a Dutch father and Austrian mother. He lived and worked in the Netherlands, South Africa, the USA and St. Maarten, beginning his career in advertising and display before starting his own studio for fashion and commercial photography in 1965. He toured Rhodesia extensively between 1966 and 1968 and opened a studio in Brussels in 1969 before returning to Johannesburg, where he had settled in the 1950s. Happy Sunday contains a series of erotic photographs of a girl named Sue over the course of one imagined day.
