Color Bar is a series of photographs focused on one color at a time. The photos were taken at various locations, including places in Canada, the United States, and Brazil, between 2010 and 2012. Some are purely abstract, others are clearly figurative; most fall somewhere in between. Some underwent only basic processing while others faced more dramatic changes. Look closely and let the details sink in. Flip through them and let the colors flow.
