The ‘edges’ that Harry Gruyaert explores in this incredibly lush, full-colour book, are the oceans, seas and rivers where humans meet the edge and the water begins. This unusual volume, which opens from the top up, takes the reader to Israel’s Dead Sea, the Mali River in Niger, the North Sea of Iceland, South Korea and Biarritz, as Gruyaert’s sensitive photos record the subtle chromatic vibrations of the edges of the Orient and the Occident. Gruyaert opposes the hustle of the city with a pared-down, yet intense, nature. His landscapes are never empty; they are inhabited places where light, colour, objects, people and situations weave a serene, sublime tableau.

"[Harry Gruyaert] photographs the vibrating boundaries between what he finds and what he has, between what he knows and what he feels; the shaky boundaries between what he discovers and what he makes himself; the blurred boundaries, I mean, between what sustains him and what moves him. He photographs the boundaries that hover just beyond our sight too, the shadows of an actual reality too blurred, too confused, too naunced for any language to hold.–He captures it whole. He holds it.–As powerful art. As heart-wrenching beauty. As the overwhelming mystery of ungrammatical silence." – Excerpt from "Blurred Boundaries," by Richard Nonas, featured in Edges
