Born out of my fascination with the colors associated with political candidates in the 2016 American presidential race, these palettes represent places, films, and other conceptual spaces. I work "by hand" photographing actual elements in physical spaces (by going to that city, neighborhood or place) or by trawling digital spaces for symbolic colors. While on site, I match the camera's capture with what my eye sees, aiming for the most faithful color of that element with the lighting of that day. I then play around with the placement of various colors on the page.
Every palette comes with a legend that identifies each color and its source.
