Liehrmann Gallery: Harry Fayt: Underwater Photographs


The Liehrmann Gallery in Liège presents Underwater Photographs by Harry Fayan immersion in the world of the Belgian underwater photographer;

He introduces himself as follows: “Of a very curious nature, inspiration comes to me from everywhere.
From an object found in a flea market, a news item, an image, a street scene, my mind proceeds as with a puzzle.
Different elements combine to create an unexpected concept, most often eccentric but always coherent.
Refusing the “it can’t be done”, I like to think in a free spirit without conforming to a certain vision of society.
Harry Fay

In April 2022, Harry Fayt was selected by WBI (Wallonia – Brussels – International) to represent Wallonia during a traveling exhibition which will tour the world for five years. From New York to Tokyo, from Beijing to Kinshasa, dozens of capitals will soon discover his work.
After his first monograph of 500 copies published in 2019 on the theme of the nude, the photographer is taking advantage of this cycle of exhibitions to publish his second work “Modern Icons and Other Underwater Dreams” which presents, among other things, his “Modern Icons” and his artistic diversions and “Heart Made in Belgium”, his immersed portraits of Belgian artists.
Nourished by Belgian surrealism, it gives birth to unique, dense, intense and committed works. The art of staging fascinates him. With intelligence and humor, he uses, like a magician, many subterfuges to immerse us in a fantastic universe. It reveals personalities, revisits artistic masterpieces, questions society.
