Colours of the Earth
Colours of the Earth is a display of photography from all over the world, positioned to resemble a wave of changing colours.
The viewer is taken on a journey throughout China, Alaska, Hawaii, Australia, the Philippines, Canada and many countries in South America, to see the people, the lands and the animals, through a social and environmental perspective.
From the depths of Amazonian tribal communities to islands of free flowing lava, culturally and geographically diverse territories are explored in their entirety. Visions of life for those struggling with basic and survival needs are accompanied by our rapidly deteriorating natural landscapes. The vivid colour theme brings together scenes from across the globe, unifying far spread life into one exhibition of the planet.
The exhibition runs from April 9 to May 6 2011.
All photography will be on sale as a way to raise funds for a project called 'Connect, Collaborate, Combat', which will help combat the worst forms of child slavery in the Philippines.
