Colour My World

By Howard M Beck

Art & photography, General non-fiction, Environment & nature | Hardback


Colour is actually a product of how light is reflected or absorbed by an object. This depends both on its physical properties and its characteristics as processed by the eye and brain working in concert. Physically objects are said to have colour, and this is dependent upon the reflective properties of the object’s surface. A viewer’s visualisation of an object’s colour depends not only on the spectrum of the light leaving its surface, but also on a host of contextual cues, so that the colour tends to be perceived as relatively constant: that is, relatively independent of the lighting spectrum and viewing angle, etc. Colour My World is a visual feast for the eyes, an evocative collection of international images admirably demonstrating colour in the world around us as it is perceived by landscape photographer.
