    Coloured People

    2018

    In the series Colored People, Richard Westerhuis experiments with colored light in different colors. The color determines the mood of the photo. Blue feels cool and distant. Orange and yellow give a feeling of warmth. The colors immediately evoke emotions in the viewer. Do we automatically link these emotions to the model? Or can we look beyond color? This series was preceded by a long preparation. Colored light behaves differently, according to Westerhuis. He spent a lot of time experimenting with different color filters. After all, the colored light not only affects the model, but also the environment.
