See Inside


At a time when the world was politically divided into East and West, Magnum photographer Harry Gruyaert’s quest for light and sensuality led him to capture the colours of two very different worlds: the vibrant glitziness of Las Vegas and Los Angeles in 1981 and the austere restraint of Moscow in 1989, just before the fall of the Soviet Union. Although his intention was not to document current affairs, he nonetheless created a remarkable set of images that preserve a moment in history in glowing shades.

This two-volume set reproduces almost 100 photographs from the series, nearly seventy for the very first time. It also includes an introductory essay by David Campany.
