Foreword by François Hébel
Afterword by Richard Nonas

The first monograph dedicated to the work of Harry Gruyaert.

This book offers a masterly incursion into the work of one of Magnum's most talented photographers, revealing a personal journey through color. The images in this book offer a new territory for photography: an emotive, non-narrative and radically graphic perception of the world. Harry Gruyaert describes photography as a physical experience, a state of excitement. Heir to the American tradition embodied by Saul Leiter, Joel Meyerowitz, Stephen Shore and William Eggleston, and greatly influenced by the cinema, Harry Gruyaert has created an extremely personal chromatic palette, a dense red, a vibrant green, a way of cutting light and its shadows into the frame. Whether it's Belgium, Morocco, the United States, Paris or Moscow, no subject counts as such. All are reservoirs of inspiration and retinal impressions. In Antwerp, while playing soccer in his shorts, Harry Gruyaert fetches the ball from the tall grass that caresses his thighs. The light is beautiful, and his mind escapes the field. The photographer describes this moment as a liberation of the senses, the starting point of his quest for sensation.
