With a Preface by Harry Gruyaert.
Postface by Robert Delpire.
Text by Hugo Claus.
This book brings together the work of two important Belgian artists. In a singular approach, the photographer and the writer each offer their vision of Belgium. One man’s bright colors and poignant eye intertwine with the other’s poetic outlook, for a powerful book in which their sensitivities meet.
'Belgium is probably the European country that became Americanized the most quickly after the war, whence the power of its banality (...). Beautiful, ugly, the banality of the beautiful, the beauty of the ugly. Those contradictions are also my own.' Harry Gruyaert
