About this deal

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. A collection of seventy-five images that connect one realm with the next, this volume shows that beyond the marvelous colorist that he is, Gruyaert’s images also depict a photographer’s vision of the world. No matter the setting, the country or the era, Gruyaert deploys a luminous alchemy suspended in time. A simpler image from Gao, Mali, in 1988 simply shows a vacant room, a glassless window, some fabric blowing in what is perhaps a breeze, a vacant red chair, and through the window opening people walking on a dirt street. His very intuitive and physical sense of place immerses the spectator in a world that borrows simultaneously from the cinematic universe and from that of the painter.

Hilariously funny, sometimes rather sad, but invariably interesting, this is a superbly diverting book. A note from FRAMES: if you have a forthcoming or recently published book of photography, please let us know. Through the play of transparency and the mise en abyme of his images, Harry Gruyaert tells in Between Worlds the illusion of the world.By continuing your navigation on this site, you accept the use of cookies, which we use to better understand your expectations and offer you services adapted to your interests. Although Cyprus is a relatively small island, its position in the East Mediterranean has always given it strategic importance beyond its size. After the Cuban Revolution in 1959, the new government closed American-owned nightclubs and consolidated the island’s recording industry under a state-run monopoly.

The first ever book about Cuban record sleeve design, compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker, Cuba: Music and Revolution , when Cuba’s Special Period, brought about by the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the withdrawal of Russia’s financial support for the Cuban government, led to the demise of vinyl-record manufacturing in Cuba. One of the things that’s fascinating about this collection is the way every image has multiple narrative lines. Clark addresses this strangeness head-on, examining the art of Pissarro, Matisse and others in relation to it. Other images range from New York City to Israel to Belgium to Paris to Tokyo, Istanbul, Madrid, the Dominican Republic, Tunis.

His intuitive and physical relationship to places immerses the spectator in a world that borrows from the cinematic universe and from that of the painter. Magnum photographer Harry Gruyaert’s work has always been thrilling in the way it articulates a particular way of seeing. Harry Gruyaert: Between Worlds dissolves the boundaries between exterior and interior spaces, a closed world and one that is open to elsewhere. Harry Gruyaert is renowned for his photographs of India, Morocco and Egypt as well as of the west of Ireland, and for his use of colour. A Magnum photographer and renowned colorist, Harry Gruyaert has been traveling the world for over forty years.

Well-placed for travel from all over the globe with plenty of sunshine throughout the year, Cyprus has become a favored tourist destination. 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. But the idea of holding multiple levels of now as being simultaneously present is fascinating and maddening and finally deeply rewarding in a way that is impossible to reduce to a single topic or thesis statement. The green walls the red chair are a compositionally wonderful pairing, the frame within a frame of the glassless window isolates the narrative outside. In this book, the intimate perspective and the passage of time reveal the unknown truths about a man, a family and an entire country.Generously illustrated with hundreds of colour images, Cuba: Music and Revolution presents the history of Cuban record cover art, including many examples previously unseen outside the island itself.
