Life in Colour
Susan Tyler Hitchcock
“Colour moves and motivates. Colour calms and quiets. Colour sings, colour dances, colour takes centre stage in the theatre of our lives. It is so woven into the fabric of our speech and vision, choice and circumstance that we rarely stop to pay attention.”
Life in Colour is a stunning, vibrant and energetic celebration of photography and colour. This remarkable book explores the world through magnificent, intriguing and revelatory photography from the archives of National Geographic.
“Colours have meaning. Red is a dicey, dangerous colour. Red is power, red is lacquer, red is alluring, red is a loaded gun...”
Each chapter explores a different palette - Blue, Orange, Green, Yellow, Purple, Red - showcasing a striking selection of photographs from London to Lebanon and Beijing to Bristol. Other chapters on Silver, Gold, Black, White and ‘Unseen’ reveal a treasure-chest of inspirational and unforgettable images.
Edited by Annie Griffiths, who worked with National Geographic on the gorgeous Simply Beautiful Photographs, Life in Colour is packed with beautiful, amazing images - photographs guaranteed to inspire, to make you look and smile, to see and think.
