“Colourlife” shows how vivid colours are used to draw attention.  Their use is found in the natural world, such as colourful flowers, or in the man-made world for objects or buildings.  In the latter, colour is often used for commercial purposes. 

“Colourlife” is also a play on words. It is interesting to note how frequently objects depicting living items (plants, animals and     people) use altered and heightened colour states to achieve the desired effects.   In the current context of a photographic essay, and with a sense of irony, “Colourlife” was the name of a paper for printing which gave good fade resistance.  Alas, it is not used for the current photographs.

All of the photographs were taken with digital cameras and printed digitally.
