Space | Noor Nasser
Today, color is everywhere. Before 1856, the world was brown and beige. Color was obtained through expensive natural dyes, making it exclusive to the rich. Until Sir Willian Perkin accidentally discovered the first synthetic organic dye in history. This set off a revolution in the worlds of medicine, chemistry and fashion. The color was mauve. So let us look at a world devoid of color through black and white photography. Now, we notice something else we take for granted... Space. Living through COVID-19 redefines the definition of personal space. We all need it to survive, but realistically speaking, we can’t all walk six feet apart. In this photo essay, I highlight the concept of space and human connection through shades of mauve.
