Description

All visitors, whether to the Greek or Turkish side of the island, discover the immensely rich history, which has resulted in so many civilizations making their mark upon its soil.

Harry Gruyaert: Between Worlds dissolves the boundaries between exterior and interior spaces, a closed world and one that is open to elsewhere. Another image from is from Madrid in 1993 and appears to be taken outside a subway car, through a sheet of glass to a man and a woman sitting inside the car.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. Clark addresses this strangeness head-on, examining the art of Pissarro, Matisse and others in relation to it. Other images range from New York City to Israel to Belgium to Paris to Tokyo, Istanbul, Madrid, the Dominican Republic, Tunis. But the idea of holding multiple levels of now as being simultaneously present is fascinating and maddening and finally deeply rewarding in a way that is impossible to reduce to a single topic or thesis statement. A Magnum photographer and renowned colorist, Harry Gruyaert has been traveling the world for over forty years.

A collection of seventy-five images that connect one realm with the next, this volume shows that beyond the marvelous colorist that he is, Gruyaert’s images also depict a photographer’s vision of the world. The artwork here reflects both the cultural and musical depth of Cuba as well as the political influence of revolutionary communism.A text by David Campany examines the photographer's singular approach and positioning, which is "in the space of the threshold (where) we are balanced, neither in nor out, present but in neither place. One of the things that’s fascinating about this collection is the way every image has multiple narrative lines. 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. The green walls the red chair are a compositionally wonderful pairing, the frame within a frame of the glassless window isolates the narrative outside.

If These Apples Should Fall: Cezanne and the Present looks back on Cezanne from a moment – our own – when such judgments may seem to need justifying. A penetrating analysis of the work of one of the most influential painters in the history of modern art by one of the world’s most respected art historians.No matter the setting, the country or the era, Gruyaert deploys a luminous alchemy suspended in time.
