Harry GRUYAERT

The Belgian photographer Harry GRUYAERT (1941-) is famous for the photojournalistic use he has made of color. He studied cinema and photography in Brussels in the beginning of the 60’s. Fashion photographer for a while, his thirst for greater openness led him to document a cruise for Paquet in Morocco. The trip and the places inspired him. Harry GRUYAERT decided to conduct a double career: corporate photographer on one side, personal documentary photography research on the other side. He joined Magnum in 1982. In the way of William EGGLESTON, Saul LEITER and Joel MEYEROWITZ, he revolutionized the use of color in photography. Each photo by Harry GRUYAERT tells a story. Their qualities have been awarded by the Kodak Prize in 1976 and by a widespread recognition.
