George Todd, a teacher of and writer on photography, selects 80 of his ownolour images and describes the story behind each of them in this book. Theubjects vary from the purely abstract to still life, architectural andandscape photographs, and the locations range from Italy and Greece to theouthern United States.;In each case the author describes how the image wasreated, from the original conception of the picture, through the choice ofiewpoint and composition to the final selection of the chosen exposure forrinting. What all the images have in common is that they triumphantlyemonstrate that colour can, in and of itself, be a compositional tool, andhat the use of strongly contrasting forms and shadows need not be confinedo classic black and white photography. On the contrary, as this book shows,olour can be just as much a fine-art form as monochrome and, indeed, thathe bold and inventive use of the colour medium can give the photographer'sork a valuable extra dimension.
