All Masters of Photography Quotes

Harry Gruyaert | Forest of Soignes

In front of a black-and-white photo you try more to understand what is happening between the persons, whereas with color you should immediately be affected by the different tones which express a situation. So (…) the object and its color are one and the same thing, which by the way is one of the principles of the theory of perception. Form and color are inseparable.

  • I recently discovered one of your works ( De ci- de là) and I found it very interesting both for the soul behind the release button and also because the title gets very close to my first photobook ( Somewhere, Sometime). I am not a professional photographer but have been active in photographing since the early 60’s.
    I would love to sent you a pdf version of my photobook and possibly have your comments on it.
    Looking forward to hearing from you. Many thanks in advance. Christiaan
