Description

With a historical gazetteer, chronology of major events, index, bibliography and historical and contemporary maps, this book is an invaluable companion to students or visitors to the island. 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. That he latterly slipped under the radar to some extent is partly explained by his detachment from the mainstream as well as by his frequent switching of studios between England and the USA, although this helped charge his creative batteries. 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. 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.

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. Tipping over into photography, dissolving the boundaries between exterior and interior spaces, closed world or open world, forgetting oneself in a suspended time. A bit later, Campany continues, “For Gruyaert, making threshold images means bringing together different light levels and different color temperatures.Renato Cisneros digs into his own family history to understand and demystify the figure of ‘El Gaucho’: the controversial Secretary during the regime of Francisco Morales Bermúdez and, shortly after, the country’s Minister of War. As Barbara Rose said of Smith’s major Tate Gallery retrospective in 1975, he was ‘at once in and out of touch with the currents of the mainstream … au courant and aloof at the same time.

There is so much going on in all these images and the result is not confusion as much as a nuanced and sophisticated complexity. A Magnum photographer and renowned colorist, Harry Gruyaert has been traveling the world for over forty years. Between Worlds, Gruyaert’s new book, is a deeply wonderful new collection of images taken throughout his career. Most often, there is some version of a window that separates the scene, creates dissonance, and includes reflections that bring in unexpected content. 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.Other images range from New York City to Israel to Belgium to Paris to Tokyo, Istanbul, Madrid, the Dominican Republic, Tunis. Hilariously funny, sometimes rather sad, but invariably interesting, this is a superbly diverting book. Magnum photographer Harry Gruyaert’s work has always been thrilling in the way it articulates a particular way of seeing. It is impossible, looking at this picture, to confidently place where everything in the image is in relationship to each other. A familiar theme, but one that, across the generations, can occasionally unearth something rather powerful.
