ABOUT THE COLOUR:
The Secret Lives of Colour by Kassia St.Clair is a vivid story of culture and history told through the lens of colour. As a film photographer, I am constantly exploring the old times (and the new) through a camera lens, and so this book was an instant inspiration for this collection as it is yet another medium of exploration. With all of that in mind, I only saw it fitting to call the titles of the cases by the exact shade they depict. The short fact below is one of my favourites that the author, Kassia, chose to write to describe 'Hematite Red', and a fact that I would like to share with you!
“For the sake of simplicity, hematite, which is, strictly speaking, the mineral form of iron oxide, here also includes other kinds of red iron oxides and ochres. All owe their colouring to the same same compound: anhydrous iron oxide, or, more simply, rust. This incestuous family of pigments occurs naturally and widely across the Earth’s crust.”
