Exhibition - Harry Gruyaert
Magnum Print Room, London
September 15-October 31, 2015 - Open: 11:00 - 16:30, Wednesday – Friday
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. Greatly influenced by the American tradition epitomized by Saul Leiter, William Eggleston and Stephen Shore, and by the cinéma, he created a highly personal palette of saturated tones. His work defined a new territory for color photography: an emotive, non-narrative, and boldly graphic way of perceiving the world.
