"When I was living in London in the early 70s there was a crazy television set in my house. By playing around with the antenna and tweaking the controls I could suddenly obtain fascinating colours. This led me to spend a couple of months following the latest news as it happened from the first Apollo flights to the Munich Olympic Games, as well as American and English television series and ads. It made me see the world in a different way and to question the ever growing influence of television throughout the world (...) I had therefore become a kind of bedroom reporter confronted with the "society of spectacle", in front of this factory of universal thought: it's probably the only time in my life when I truly felt like a "photojournalist", as close as I would ever be to the world's terrible reality." - Harry Gruyaert
