Yellow, Blue and Red
Yellow, Blue and Red is a photographic multi-image project that expresses how much I miss my home country, Colombia using flowers new to me, but very common in the UK, that match the colours of the Colombian flag. The flowers were photographed in controlled light and posed in front of same colour backdrops to generate a visual and meaning mix between the flowers and each colour of the Colombian flag. Yellow is for the gold and the richness of my land. Blue, for the two oceans that bathe its shores. Red for the blood, the blood spilled to give us freedom.
