About this deal

A text by David Campany examines the photographer's singular approach and positioning, which is "in the space of the threshold (where) we are balanced, neither in nor out, present but in neither place. At the heart of Cezanne lies a sense of disquiet: a homelessness haunting the vividness, an anxiety underlying the appeal of colour.

Between Worlds, Gruyaert’s new book, is a deeply wonderful new collection of images taken throughout his career. And after the initial joy of growing comfortable with many layers of content, the question becomes: What is the relationship of all these layers to each other and then to us? Between them is another window looking to a subway platform on the far side where two nuns talk to a woman and a young boy.A good photo is a photo that says a lot of things about the place and the moment it was taken,” says Gruyaert. The green walls the red chair are a compositionally wonderful pairing, the frame within a frame of the glassless window isolates the narrative outside. With a historical gazetteer, chronology of major events, index, bibliography and historical and contemporary maps, this book is an invaluable companion to students or visitors to the island. A picture from New York City in 2020 is again a combination of direct vision, obscured vision, reflection, perhaps even reflections of reflections. Most often, there is some version of a window that separates the scene, creates dissonance, and includes reflections that bring in unexpected content.

The artwork here reflects both the cultural and musical depth of Cuba as well as the political influence of revolutionary communism. No matter the setting, the country or the era, Gruyaert deploys a luminous alchemy suspended in time. If These Apples Should Fall: Cezanne and the Present looks back on Cezanne from a moment – our own – when such judgments may seem to need justifying.His powers of persuasion clearly exceeded those of Colonel Baker, who seemed the personification of Victorian solidity until that embarrassing incident in the sealed railway compartment, where he failed to entice Miss Dickinson to join in his bit of fun, and afterwards had to try and explain his conduct to the High Court, with the whole nation hanging on his every word.
