Throughout time man has used color to enhance himself and the world around him. Colorful World beautifully reveals to the reader the colors of the world; not the colors found in the natural surroundings but rather the colors selected by man to express something about himself and the community in which he lives.
Amandine Guisez's photographs transport the reader around the globe where she "discovered a passion that knows no political frontiers." She also discovers that "those who deal with colour speak the same launguage, a language concerned with the intensity, brilliance or depth of a particular tone, value and shade."
The 200 plus photographs are divided by color and supporting text touches on the meaning of colors and how different cultures have viewed colors through the ages. This book is "a celebration of human creativity" and I thoroughly enjoyed viewing each page.
