Description

A good photo is a photo that says a lot of things about the place and the moment it was taken,” says Gruyaert. There is so much going on in all these images and the result is not confusion as much as a nuanced and sophisticated complexity.

Between them is another window looking to a subway platform on the far side where two nuns talk to a woman and a young boy.No matter the setting, the country or the era, Gruyaert deploys a luminous alchemy suspended in time. The green walls the red chair are a compositionally wonderful pairing, the frame within a frame of the glassless window isolates the narrative outside. Other images range from New York City to Israel to Belgium to Paris to Tokyo, Istanbul, Madrid, the Dominican Republic, Tunis. Clark addresses this strangeness head-on, examining the art of Pissarro, Matisse and others in relation to it. There is the story from the observer, the story from the two inside the car (the looks on their faces speak volumes), the story from the four the far distance.

Since the 1940s a steady stream of Cuban musicians has also made the migration to the US, sparking changes in North American musical forms: bandleader Machito set New York’s jazz and Latin scene on fire, and master drummer Chano Pozo’s entry into Dizzy Gillespie’s group led to the birth of Latin jazz, to name just two.At the heart of Cezanne lies a sense of disquiet: a homelessness haunting the vividness, an anxiety underlying the appeal of colour. Between Worlds, Gruyaert’s new book, is a deeply wonderful new collection of images taken throughout his career. A Traveller’s History of Cyprus” offers a complete and authoritative history of the island’s past and also touches on the sensitive present-day issues for both sides of the island. He has had the good fortune to travel widely, and whether he’s taking images in Belgium or Morocco, London or Paris, airports or alleys, it’s not that he sees things differently.

It is impossible, looking at this picture, to confidently place where everything in the image is in relationship to each other. He photographs things we’ve all seen – think about TV Shots, his documentary/commentary on British society made of photographs of television screens – but never seen quite the way he does. Meet Monsieur Benoit, who appeared suddenly in Paris with a scheme for telegraphing messages across the world (or, at least, across the room) by means of electricity and the telepathic power of snails, and actually raised the money to build this extraordinary machine. Through the play of transparency and the mise en abyme of his images, Harry Gruyaert tells in Between Worlds the illusion of the world.Magnum photographer Harry Gruyaert’s work has always been thrilling in the way it articulates a particular way of seeing. A simpler image from Gao, Mali, in 1988 simply shows a vacant room, a glassless window, some fabric blowing in what is perhaps a breeze, a vacant red chair, and through the window opening people walking on a dirt street.
