Life in Color: National Geographic Photographs curated by Annie Griffiths
Looking through this book is like a balm for the soul. Beauty is celebrated in all of its guises, all around the planet. Text is minimal, mostly quotations from poets and artists on the subject of colour.
Colour is the place where our brain and the universe meet. -- Paul Cezanne
Of all of god's gifts to the sight of man, colour is the holiest, the most divine, the most solemn. -- John Ruskin
Colour is a vital necessity. It is a raw material indispensable to life, like water and fire. -- Fernand Leger
Most of the images are available for purchase from the National Geographic Art website.
