On a recent trip to Spain, I was struck by the way the feeling of being ‘somewhere else’ was highlighted by the difference in colours from those that I’m used to. Here in the UK, it’s mostly green (and grey!), whereas in Spain I was struck by the earth colours (ochre, terracotta), the blue of sea and sky and the rich hues of fresh fruits and vegetables.
This came about by accident. I was playing about in a hotel room and pointed the camera at my wife. She doesn’t like having her photo taken, so put the magazine up in front of her face. I took the picture, anyway, and decided it looked quite good, so I set up this triptych.
