HBL Book of the Week: Chroma

Wednesday, 6 July 2011

Line judge, Wimbledon, London; from Chroma: Celebrating colour in photography
Chroma: Celebrating colour in photography by Michel Pastoureau (Thames & Hudson, 2010) does exactly as its title states: through 336 photos, Pastoureau demonstrates again and again the power of colour. The book is divided into six sections - by colour of course: red, blue, green, yellow, white and black.

Demonstration, Milan, by Stefano Pavesi; from Chroma

HBL loves: that after a meditative opening essay on the meaning of colour, you are left simply to enjoy each photograph, page after page.
