Following Lorenzo Vitturi’s selection of winning images for our ‘COLORS’ theme, this compilation of 20 images, selected by the Life Framer editors represents some of the other talented photographers whose work struck us and left a mark. Some are more literal representations of the theme, and others are more abstract, but each one is a stunning image worthy of exposure and attention.

These are intended to be a conversation starter… so feel free to join the discussion on our social networks.

“This project is inspired by the idea of impermanence and illusion of reality in Zen philosophy. Using flowers as an ephemeral subject I painted them with unreal colours to give a feeling of abstraction. In these photographs the flowers are captured out of the flow of time, conveying in this way the illusion of a constant present moment and expanded memory of it”.

“Ijmuiden is a fishing town in the Netherlands. What I find interesting in Ijmuiden is industrialization of what we normally think of as being a pre-industrial interaction between people and nature.

I have designed digital cameras. What is quite surprising is how much effort goes into having the camera produce images that we consider to be natural. We often think of a camera as a mechanical eye, however a camera captures and processes images entirely differently to the human visual system. Camera designers spend enormous amounts of effort tinkering with parameters to have the camera create a natural looking image and this becomes very difficult in low light conditions. Capturing images at night highlights the divergence of visualization between human and machine. You perceive the image as being other worldly and unnatural. You feel reassured in the cameras failure in its mission to be a mechanical eye”.

“Caught by the way everyday architecture and lighting can create cinematic moods I choose to shoot 35mm on my Minolta SRT as it engages with my practice as a professional cinematographer”.

“This image was taken whilst wandering the streets of Hong Kong on a recent holiday. I was struck by the many contrasts that exist there, particularly the old ways of life crashing against the shiny global economy which provides a wonderful backdrop for image-making”.

“I lived in China for 9 years and the country become an obsession for me. I choose to create a series with a special film – I wanted to transmit to people how China is a totally different world to the one I knew before”.

“The color tones in my grandmother’s retirement home are dominated by mint green light brown and egg white. Since my grandmother is a loving lady with a big heart it seems to me that her presence fills the scene with color”.
