ABOUT THE COLOUR:
One of my favourite reads of all time is The Secret Lives of Colour by Kassia St.Clair. This book 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 the colour and a fact that I would like to share with you!
“Ivory, whether sourced from walruses, narwhals or elephants, has long been prized. And when elephant hunts became a status symbol, ivory only grew in prestige. The colour profited by association. Western wedding dresses were generally colourful until Queen Victoria wore ivory satin trimmed with British lace in 1840. Ivory itself was used for thousands of years to make costly decorative items...Demand for Ivory took an inevitable toll on the animals supplying it."
