Photographer Adrien Broom‘s The Color Project is a celebration of the wonderful colors that make-up a rainbow. It is an eight-part series of images exploring “the world of color as seen through the eyes of a little girl.” To help get this ambitious project off the ground, Broom went over to the folks over on Kickstarter to help fund her campaign.
The photo series starts off with a little freckle-faced girl waking up one morning, finding herself in a room that is totally absent of almost any color. All has turned into a stark white. Plates, bunnies, clouds, computer keyboards, doves, chef hats, cakes and the moon, marshmallows, the lamp, a clock…everything. After she explores the white room, she sees a door that when opened, leads her to her first discovery; the wonderful World of Red. The make-believe series’ plot has the girl explore the different rooms of the house. As she does this, she discovers a different color in each room.
In the scenes that reveal each color, the sets are meticulously designed to uniquely represent every shade’s theme. Each one is exceptionally detailed. It takes about a month to style every color. This superbly inventive series also has a short film production version in the pipeline, and a kid’s storybook as well as prints of every monochromatic room will be made available for purchase. The Color Project is a work in progress, and has for a finale, the young girl ultimately encountering the full color spectrum of a rainbow.
