The first retrospective of the pioneering work of Harry Gruyaert

Born in Antwerp in 1941 and a member of Magnum Photos since 1982, Harry Gruyaert revolutionized creative and experimental uses of color in the 1970s and 1980s. Influenced by cinema and American photographers, his work defined new territory for color photography: an emotive, non-narrative, and boldly graphic way of perceiving the world.

In 1972, while living in London, Gruyaert created the striking series TV Shots by turning the dial on a television set at random and photographing the distorted images he saw there. A later series, Made in Belgium, portrays his ambivalent relationship with his homeland in a palette of saturated tones. In his most recent work, he embraces the possibilities of digital photography, taking further creative risks to capture light in new ways.

Gruyaert’s images are autonomous, often independent of any context or thematic logic. This volume, the first retrospective of his work, is a superb overview of his personal quest for freedom of expression and the liberation of the senses. 80 color illustrations

François Hébel is the curator of the Harry Gruyaert show at the Maison Européene de la photographie in April 2015. He has been producer, curator, and author of numerous exhibitions and books.

Review:

“While the colors might pull you in, what is happening within the frame of Gruyaert’s photographs stand alone primarily because his intent is to create a narrative within a single image.”
- Slate―Behold Photo Blog

“Graphic, charged, documentary-style color photographs. . . . Spans Mr. Gruyaert’s evolution as an artist.”
- Lens: The New York Times Photography Blog

“Demonstrates that color can indeed be employed to compose exceptional photographs... Ideal for anyone curious about contemporary photography, photojournalism, and, of course, color photography.”
- Library Journal

“Seamless and transporting... Gruyaert is in many ways kin to Garry Winogrand and Lee Friedlander, but he works in bold saturated color... In a world filled with street photographers, these days working mostly in color, Gruyaert's is a singular vision.”
- The New York Times Book Review

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Born in Antwerp in 1941, Harry Gruyaert was one of the first European photographers to explore the creative potential of colour in the 1970s and 1980s. This book brings together his best work, including images from his renowned 1972 series TV Shots and the later Made in Belgium, in one beautifully produced volume. Influenced by such American photographers as Saul Leiter, Joel Meyerowitz, Stephen Shore and William Eggleston, as well as by cinema, Gruyaerts work defined new territory for colour photography: an emotive, non-narrative and boldly graphic way of perceiving the world. His photographs are autonomous and self-sufficient, often independent from any context or thematic logic. A member of Magnum Photos since 1982, he has embraced the possibilities of digital photography in his most recent work, feeling that it allows him to take more risks and capture new kinds of light.
