For more than thirty years, Harry Gruyaert has been recording the subtle chromatic vibrations of Eastern and Western light. His photographs attest to his singular vision: his interest in story, public space and unexpected scenes.

This book brings together 125 of Gruyaert's photographs of India, many published here for the first time. From Gujarat to Kerala, Gruyaert captured the quintessence of this multifaceted country. Streets bustling with activity in New Delhi or Calcutta; modest villages in Tamil Nadu or Rajasthan; ghats of the great religious city of Benares; women in saffron and purple saris beating grain, dyers busy at smoky vats, an encampment of nomadic shepherds at twilight... Gruyaert's India is saturated with colour, light and noise - and sometimes silence too.

________________

À travers une dizaine de voyages sur plus de 40 ans, Harry Gruyaert a parcouru inlassablement la péninsule indienne et nous livre dans cet ouvrage un témoignage de ce pays en tension où coexistent en permanence tradition et modernité, effervescence et tranquillité. De multiples détails, différentes strates, s’enchevêtrent dans ces photographies, pour la plupart inédites, qui oscillent entre puissance chromatique et une palette quasi monochrome. L’air est saturé de couleurs, de lumière, de bruits, parfois de silence aussi. En restituant l’expérience multi sensorielle qu’il a perçue au fil des ans face aux mystères de ce pays, le photographe belge dresse un tableau contrasté à rebours de tout exotisme.
