LE BAL : Harry Gruyaert : A Sense of Place / NORD, 2023


Harry Gruyaert’s affinity with cinema was recently confirmed with his film series A Sense of Place. In the tradition of the slideshow (projection of slides with a soundtrack), these short videos link photographs of the same territory, to original music by Tuur Florizoone. This project is also an opportunity for Harry Gruyaert to review the selection of his images and to rework, using digital tools, the chroma of the images produced with Kodachrome film.

NORD, an unprecedented production for the Institute for Photography, sequences more than 160 photographs of Hauts-de-France – rural, urban, industrial and coastal landscapes – taken from the 1980s until today, from assigned or personal works.

This projection was presented at the Institut de la photographie in Lille from April 7 to June 18, 2023.
