HARRY GRUYAERT - WESTERN AND EASTERN LIGHT
May 09, 2017 — Jun 27, 2017
Michael Hoppen Gallery are delighted to present "Western and Eastern Light", the first exhibition of photographs at the gallery by Belgian photographer Harry Gruyaert.
Gruyaert is a Magnum photographer who has travelled extensively over the last 30 years photographing Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and America, often by road from the comfort of his Volkswagen Kombi. He was one of the first European photographers to take advantage of the creative potential of colour photography, following in the footsteps of great American colourists such as William Eggleston and Stephen Shore.
