I am proud to share that one of the images I took of a Massai woman in Tanzania is part of the beautiful book “Life in Color” published by National Geographic.
Here is a copy I found at the bookstore a couple of days ago 😉
This is the description of the book and project taken from National Geographic:
LIFE IN COLOR: Photographs (National Geographic Books; ISBN 978-1-4262-0962-8), curated by world-renowned photographer Annie Griffiths, is a gorgeous gallery of 245 photographs that showcase the kaleidoscope of colors in the world.
“Colors ignite your senses, so prepare for sensory overload. The photographs in this book explode off the page; the saturated images will make you feel like you’re there,” writes Jonathan Adler, “happy-chic” designer, potter and author, in the book’s foreword. “Keep it on your coffee table and feel alive. Surrender to these photographs and go on a whirlwind tour of the world.”
Through chapters divided by hue, LIFE IN COLOR navigates the globe to reveal fascinating and astonishing images — a cave explorer suspended in a shaft of golden light; the purple reflection of a medieval Slovenian castle in morning mist; enchanting Japanese maples coated in thick green moss. Color is also used in surprising and unexpected ways — the iridescent blue irises of a young cougar cub in Canada; a man’s torso coated in thick silver paint for Carnival; and a stallion in a cherry-red harness standing before the Great Pyramids of Giza.
The chapters open with short essays on the meaning, feeling and symbolism of each color, such as the “friendliness” of orange and the “loudness” of red. Inspirational quotes about colors fill the pages, offering readers the timeless insights of great minds. The quotes are paired perfectly with complementary images.
LIFE IN COLOR will inspire one’s inner designer and revitalize one’s sense of perception and sight. It encourages readers to open their eyes to take in the glory and unmistakable power of color in the world around us.
