hello friends, happy friday. and happy 2022, i hope it will be a good year for all of us.
this photo of a pregnant lady in a yellow dress eating an ice-cream made me so happy today. it was taken in NYC in 1985 by Belgian photographer Harry Gruyaert – a master of film, colour, light and perfectly captured moments.
Born into a traditional Catholic Flemish family, Gruyaert was forbidden from becoming a photographer by his father, who saw it as sinful. Gruyaert left Belgium and traveled through Europe, becoming inspired by the colors and lights of the continent. He studied at the School of Film and Photography in Brussels from 1959 to 1962 before moving to Paris to pursue photography.
