A Splash of Colour
7th October 2017 - 11th October 2017Free
Colour is one of the most powerful tools at a photographer’s disposal. Along with shape, texture, space, line and form, it is one of the six classic elements of design. It is an important compositional ingredient and it is often used by photographers to set the mood of an image.
Visual story-telling is made so much more effective through the use of colour, which can make a photograph feel more vibrant, exciting, mysterious, scary, serious or even sad. Colour is a great way to communicate emotion in our images. Cool colours on the blue-green end of the colour spectrum often provoke feelings of calm, peace and tranquillity, whilst warmer colours such as reds, oranges and yellows can make us feel happy, optimistic or excited.
This exhibition brings together a full spectrum of colour images from all aspects of our lives. Some images emphasise a single dominant tone, others rely on a vivid, polychromatic style. Some of the photographers have experimented with light to enhance the colour qualities of their images. Many of the images have taken culture as a point of reference featuring iconic landmarks and buildings, or events, some feature elaborate costumes and clothing and others explore the colours to be found in landscapes and nature.
The Photographic Angle (TPA) stages photographic exhibitions that travel across the UK transforming otherwise unused spaces into temporary galleries.
