Chroma: Celebrating Colour in Photography

Chroma: Celebrating Colour in Photography
Library Shelf Location 27.PAST
Publication Date 2010
Description Chroma is one of those rare ideas of such startling simplicity – though meticulously executed – that its future as a cult success is sure. Photographs are grouped together by basic colours – red, blue, green, yellow, white and black – triggering a stream of unexpected and stimulating responses. Texts outline what it is that the colours connote today and have done in the past, then we enter a thought-provoking, delightful and occasionally shocking universe. Superbly printed images tell us more about the world today and yesterday, how we interact with it and learn from it, than any other formal study could ever do. Famous as well as unusual photographs are reproduced with examples by practically all the great names and artists who use the medium – Steve McCurry, Martin Parr, Susan Meiselas, Bruno Barbey, Raghu Rai and Peter Marlow among them.
