The Innocent Eye
Through the abstraction of the image I hope to reveal how are perception of colour has stagnated, we are constantly compensating and colour matching our surroundings. As children we have no perception of how light effects the colour of objects and space but education dilutes this innocence. In every stage of my darkroom process something is lost and gained whether it be colour, light or texture. The only colour that does not invert is grey so these photos are in pursuit of an allusive 50% grey. When slate is seen en masse it appears to be grey but is in fact varying shades of grey, purple, blue and green.
