DUNHILL COMMUNITY: CURATEDIT’S NOT ABOUT CARSBY HARRY GRUYAERT
The new dunhill Community: Curated project creates a platform to celebrate art and artists we believe in. From a multiplicity of fields, backgrounds and subject matters, we want to showcase and support our collaborators; to share with you, our community, what influences and inspires us at dunhill.
First in the series, in collaboration with iconic photographic cooperative Magnum Photos, features It’s Not About Cars; a book published by Gallery Fifty One, showcasing the work of Belgian photographer Harry Gruyaert.
Automotive engineering is part of dunhill DNA and despite cars taking a central role in each shot of this photo-series, their only function is to guide the viewer through Gruyaert’s varied subject matter; characterised by a cinematic framing and a sensitive treatment of colour, form and light.
