Original 1st edition, signed by the artist
Supreme series by Harry Gruyaert, Belgian Magnum photographer, about his farewell to Belgium in the Seventies and Eighties. These singular, almost expressionistic pictures in colour and black-and-white constituted Gruyaert's 'farewell note' before leaving for Paris, where he has been living and working for the last thirty years.
In a very personal text, accompanying his photographs, Harry Gruyaert comments on his relationship to Belgium, while an essay by the Belgium writer Dimitri Verlhust makes us truly live these photographs from the inside.
