Al principio de su vida, Gruyaert estaba tan influenciado por el cine que pensó originalmente en convertirse en un cineasta. Iría al cine casi todos los días, aprendiendo de ello para convertirse en un mejor fotógrafo. Gruyaert explicó: “Al ver películas comencé a entender la composición y el movimiento… y poco a poco descubrí cómo ver”. Michelangelo Antonioni era su cineasta favorito y estudió el encuadre y la sensación de espacio en sus películas. Gruyaert probó su trabajo como director de fotografía para documentales de televisión, pero pronto decidió dedicar todo su enfoque a la fotografía fija.

“Pienso en la fotografía como terapia.” – Harry Gruyaert
