Dans les années 70 & 80, conforté par la découverte du travail d'Eggleston au MoMA en 1976, Harry Gruyaert  (Magnum Photos) a photographié la Belgique en couleurs. Superbe livre, par un des plus célèbres photographe belges.

En début d'ouvrage, et en contrepoint, une série d'images antérieures en N&B.

 

Harry Gruyaert indique :

"La Belgique est probablement le pays européen qui s'est le plus vite américanisé après la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, d'où la puissance de cette banalité, confrontée au surréalisme et à la force des traditions conservées malgré tout, alors que j'y travaillais avant le tournant du siècle. Aujourd'hui, c'est beaucoup moins flagrant, l'uniformisation gagne, avec une autre culture de la banalité, moins ancrée dans les traditions. Beau, laid, banalité du beau, beauté de la laideur. Ces contradictions sont aussi les miennes."

He plunges himself into it headlong, and carries us along with him in these ordinary or...
