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 about "Chrome Yellow" is one that the author, Kassia, chose to write to describe the colour and a fact that I would like to share with you!
“The baking late summer of 1888 was the happiest of Vincent Van Gogh’s life. He was in the ‘Yellow House’ in Arles in the south of France, eagerly awaiting the arrival of his hero, Paul Gaugain. Van Gogh hoped that together they would found an artists’ commune in the Arles and he was, for once, optimistic about the future. Chrome yellow arrived none too soon and Van Gogh was one of many to fall hard for it. It owed its genesis to the discovery in 1762 of a scarlet-orange crystal in the Beresof gold mine in deepest Siberia.’”
